How Would You Fix The Economy?

This is from an article in the St. Petersburg Times newspaper, recently.

The Business Section asked readers for ideas on
"How Would You Fix the Economy?"
This guy nailed it:

Dear Mr. President,Patriotic retirement:

There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force; pay them $1 million apiece 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'.
