Viable way to repair Canadian Economy..

The Business Section Editor of the St. Petersburg Times asked readers
for their ideas on how they would fix the economy. Here's the winner.

Patriotic retirement

There's about 40 million people over 50 in the work force. Pay

them $ 3 million apiece severance with the following stipulations:

1) They leave their jobs. Forty million job openings -

Unemployment fixed.

2) They all buy NEW North American cars. Forty million cars ordered -

Auto Industry fixed.

3) They either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing Crisis fixed

Total amount committed -$120 billion --

Considerably less than the "stimulus package".
