How To Solve The Economy Crisis

Postby The Great JT » Tue Apr 14, 2009 12:30 pm

My mom e-mailed me this.

In an article from the St. Petersburg ( Florida ) Times Newspaper, the Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the Economy?" This guy nailed it!

Dear Mr.President,

I propose a ‘Patriotic Retirement Plan’ PPP.
There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force.
Pay them $1 million apiece severance with the following stipulations.

1) They leave their jobs. – Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.
2) They buy NEW AMERICAN cars. – Forty million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed.
3) They either buy a house, or pay off their mortgage – Housing Crisis fixed.

But how much of that would go to companies like WalMart that just ship jobs overseas?

Yeah, I didn't mean chinese farmer, I mean farmer (but our farmer here speak only english, so idk.)
Also to get back to the topic, I know the secret to fix the economy...

duct tape :mrgreen:

Okay, end of the bad jokes, but I don't know if we really can talk about economy here, half of the ppl here are below 18 and the other half may not know enough about it.
As for me, well, I'm not too involved enough to talk about it seriously.
I know what started the crisis, though, and I wait to see if the American government will react to avoid this to happend again (if they didn't acted already, IDK).

That would probably help the economy, but replacing those competent people for maybe people that are much less? Doesn't sound like a winning situation.

Also, it would maybe help solve it in the United States, but there are some other countries in the world, which would be in an even worse condition because of your protectionnist solution.

It was a typo in the original e-mail. But even so, you're missing the point.

The point is this guy's plan is "give every working person age 50 or older 1,000,000 dollars and say that they have to buy an american car (a Ford, Chevrolet, et cetera) and buy or pay off the mortgage for a house." 40,000,000 jobs open up, 40,000,000 american cars purchased, 40,000,000 houses sold. Economy fixed. America wins.

There isn't really anything in the world that's less competent than the average American, so they probably can't sink any lower. :wink:

Gah, serious Liho!Let's not get into the American stereotypical stuff when we talk about serious stuff...

And this plan is pretty dumb JT.I mean, give 1 million to a guy if he leave his job/buy a car/pay his house?That's pretty relieving on the trusting of the people.You really think every guy gonna buy a Porsche or so?And buy a house?
If the governement think that, then, let them try, thats only a 40 000 000 000 000$ try after all :lol: .
