What would you do with this money?... spend it?
|Quoting A346Dude (Reply 2):|
The government doesn't earn money, it only collects it. So, if it writes you a check for $5000, either:
-it is giving you your own money, in which case why collect it in the first place
-it is giving you someone else's money, which is not right
-it is giving you borrowed money, in which case you will have to pay back the principal plus interest in a few years
-it is printing more money, in which case the rest of your money will be worth less (or worthless, as the case may be)
I have a better stimulus idea. Get government out of the business of "fixing" the free market. It will only prolong the pain.

I'm happy to see that we have some educated people on board of airliners.net with probably a proper economic background or business studies at university?
These so called financial experts these days in the media really **** me off.
