I look at the US economy like a big boat, but the promblem is there is a big hole in the bottom of her.....
do you think throw money into a huge whole is going to fix her? hell no! create a job! a welder!
he can weld the hole up! so the fix lie's in people going back too work.
jobs = money. money = spending. spending on goods and other stuff will bring back the economy to life.
oh and the people who do have jobs are scared they wont have a job in a week.... so there not going to spend there money on pleasure. like going out too dinner and a movie and all the fun stuff. only the basic stuff, like bills and food.
