Here’s the facts on Hawaii: Bankruptcies are at an all time high, Japanese tourism has slumped to a whopping 40%,, Waikiki has the potential of turning into a ghost town….and I think I may be losing my mind at my next board meeting.
Here’s the facts on America: The stock market is fumbling, 401k’s are floundering, corporations are lying, and businessmen are crying.
Who would have thought that America, “The Great,” would ever be in this position? Our economy is drunk and won’t get off the wagon. Now I don’t want to talk about the tech bubble, or the cost of gas, or who’s administration is to blame. That’s history. Right now our country is at war and it's costing us billions and our economy has to pay for this... Again, I'm not going to play the blame game. I want results.
We need to get back to where we were in the early 90’s. Ton’s of jobs, real profits, and a robust economy. What we need is a “Shock and Awe” plan to revive this faltering economy. Simple economics state that economic growth is a direct reflection of the speed in which monetary funds are circulated. Simple? Sounds good…and it makes sense. So why doesn’t our government follow simple rules you’ve learned in college:
The solution: Instead of giving an airline a two billion dollar loan, why not just buy two billion dollars worth of tickets? The airlines will keep flying. Tourist will keep traveling. Distribute them by lottery to federal employees, or maybe military wives.
INCREASE FUNDING TO THE MWR:
The solution: Increasing MWR funding should translate into giving away tickets to concerts, games, movies, amusements parks, vacations, etc..etc…that would be available to soldiers through either lottery or incentives..etc…etc… MWR pays for the ticket, the soldiers have fun enjoying more activities here in America. Money is circulated, hey we’re all happy.
CAPITAL GAINS AND LUXURY TAX:
THE FEDERAL GAS TAX:
DECREASE THE AMOUNT OF FOREIGN AID.
TAXES FOR EVERYONE, INCLUDING THE RICH:
Again, something needs to be done. Personally, I hate relying on the government for anything other than national security. They're extremely slow moving. It's not their fault. Like any large organization, things just move fairly slow. But our future is in their hands, not just President Bush's. This war will soon be over, now is probably a good time for American to start worrying what we'll do to pay for this.
