How would you fix the economy

Patriotic retirement:
There's about 40 million people over 50 in the work force -pay them $1 million
a piece severance pay with the following 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/pay off their mortgage -
Housing Crisis fixed.

Can't get any easier than that!

OK this joke has been circulating for about 2 weeks. I thought I'd post it for those who haven't seen it...Is there some truth in any of this...Can a similar plan work?

Someone can give me 1 Million dollars and I'd gladly retire from my job!

Here's my retirement plan: I can beg 1 Million people to give me $1 each so I can have $1 Million in the bank. Hahaha.

Sounds good to me. It would resolve a lot of problems.
Maybe giving people the money instead of corporations would be a better deal cause then people could open their own businesses and sell to grow our own economy instead of some one elses.
It would be different if other economies bought from us but we give them our jobs and then buy their products lol
