Time to give the economy a boost – How would you do it?

Yesterday, I read an article, “So How Would You Kick Start the Economy?” where a number of people from all different walks of life, from all around the country, were asked how they would fix the current economic status of the United States if they were in charge.

To my surprise, there was a variety of responses to this question. It seems that many people believe that the country is standing on either side of a line when it comes to our economic woes – either they want another stimulus package or they want tax cuts to be extended. However, in reality, there are a variety of perspectives on how to solve this issue.

Examples: A school board member from North Carolina believes in the Roosevelt Depression-era method and that the government should be spending money and putting together stimulus packages to help create spending. An operations engineer believes that companies should concentrate on fair pay, and that instead of companies trying to cut spending so more money can go into the CEO’s pocket, they should put the savings into the pockets of those who “are actually doing the work.” A retired auto industry worker believes the government should reduce and control outsourcing.

The opinions go on and on, but which opinion, if any, will work? It’s anyone’s guess, but we would love to hear yours. What would you do to fix this economy?
