I read this Foreign Affairs article today that may interest some of you.
Foreign Affairs is a publication produced by The Council on Foreign Relations.
The main point of the article is to suggest directly providing money to
taxpayers rather than through other methods to boost economic growth.
It is truly an alternative approach that is rather fascinating.
To see this even being discussed is eyeopening to me.

Allright sounds like a plan. I'll take a couple million and promise to do my part in boosting the economy!

Of course they now say to give cash! After the massive transfer of wealth and the subsequent transfer of real assets to the banks, their is one way to look benevolent while really understanding most money will be used to pay back debt or be wasted by the meatheads that seem to be prevalent in the US public these days.

I don't mint getting the cash however why stop there? Why not eliminate the personal income tax altogether and let the people keep their honestly earned wages too?!

If the Council of Foreign Affairs is proposing/releasing info like that, we should take note and brace for the next crash. Times in 29 were hard, but this is going to be HARDER. Giving cash directly to taxpayers will cause corporations who are pissed about it to inflate prices. Nothing will be solved, and the situation will still be dire.

Of what Benefit is it to be pessimistic?
You of all people , should be open to a new reset.
At some point, we all have to drop the old baggage
on the turnstile.
Look forward, Pass Forward, and Plan Ahead.

It is wise of you to be an Eagle Scout in preparation.
However, never let "The World" get the best of you.
Too many Double Negatives.
Keep your Mind open to New Directions.
Is not that one of the reasons you are here on ATS ?
