I have to say beforehand that I have almost zero understanding of economy but:
Why don't they divide equally the money meant for all of the bailouts and stimulus plans, give each resident of the USA his/her share and that would start moving the economy once again?
Or is it just plain stupid?

Oh come on really? We're giving BILLIONAIRES TRILLIONS of dollars, that won't cause inflation? How about we give less to the people who have less? Instead of the money going to private jets for Citi Bank we give the money to the people who owe loans to Citi Bank so Citi Bank still gets the money, but only after people paid off their debts.

I like your idea, OP.
They're throwing approx 2 trillion into a black hole and nothing's coming back out of it to better the lives of the average person when they could be using the money to build a new city that would involve all the cutting edge technology.
I have not been in favor of any of the bailouts. I think it's throwing good money after bad. The new city idea is very positive and while we're at it, create new banks with new banking rules that actually favor citizens. Outlaw the three G's of the corporate world... greed, gimmicks, and gouging.
Want to create jobs tomorrow? Lets just spend $500 Billion on a NEW city in the USA. California Maybe? Spend $250 Billion Tax Cuts. Finally mail out $300 checks to the taxpayers. Better than nothing.
