I want a thingamajig 2.0.!
Actually, this is a sensible economic plan...go buy something...if everyone does it, demand is created, manufacturing is increased (chinese workers
Just make sure your thingamajig is american made for maximum benefit.
George Bush said the same exact thing during the late 2001/2002 recession...go shopping. It seems stupidly simple, but it gets the ball rolling.
If giving someone 3k brings in a new job that pays that money back over time many times over..its a pretty good investment (when a car sputters and
stalls, its time to pay for some gas to get it back on the road).
I never criticised Bush for suggesting we all just go shopping...he was right. I did become concerned frankly when Obama kept telling people to become
thrifty, tighten the belts, etc..aka, kept telling people to save money. That has been the wrong message for a leader of an economy...instead, Go
buy, but buy American needs to be the trend. (For America that is...Buy British if your in Britain, etc)
