The economic crisis that is resonating throughout the globe is seemingly on the minds of everyone, no matter their current position.
A question recently posed in the Sunday business section of the St. Petersburg Times asked their readers: “How would you fix the Economy?”
One particular reader answered the call to action with an astonishingly simple yet genius reply.
“Dear Mr. President,
There’s about 40 million people over 50 in the work force- Pay them $1million a piece severance with the following stipulations:
– They leave their jobs. Forty million job openings- Unemployment fixed.
– They buy NEW American cars. Forty million cars ordered- Auto industry fixed.
– They either buy a house/pay off their mortgage- Housing Crisis fixed.”
Well it certainly couldn’t get any easier than that. If given the opportunity, how would you go about repairing the state of the economy? We would love to hear your feedback and ideas.
