I thought I'd share a Socialistic idea that actually make sense. I mean, if we're going to throw away money anyway, might as well do it right...
There's 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.
Heh... go figure.
