This is reportedly from an article in the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper. The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the Economy?"
This is far and away the BEST idea ol' Subby has ever run across. I think this guy nailed it and give it a 24 missile salute!
Patriotic retirement: There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force; pay them $1 million a piece severance with 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.
All this and it's still cheaper than the "bailout".
