How to Fix the Economy: Branded Money

 by Bennett Gordon

Imagine a dollar bill, brought to you by Exxon. Or picture a 20-dollar bill bearing an image of Steve Jobs instead of Alexander Hamilton. Aaron Marcus writes for the AIGA design blog that customizable currency could help the United State government climb out of the multi-trillion dollar debt that it’s currently mired in. Donald Trump, Steven Colbert, Nike, Target, or even foreign heads of state could pay for the privilege of having their faces stamped on American currency. According to Marcus, it would be “one small step for graphic design, one giant step for the U.S. financial system.”

Suggestion for fixing America's economy. There's 40 million people over 50 in the work force. Give $1 million early retirement with stipulations: 1) They MUST retire. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed. 2) They MUST buy a new American CAR.. Forty million cars ordered Auto Industry fixed. 3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage . Housing Crisis fixed.. 4) Congress needs to pay their taxes.... or they forfeit their chair. Their retirement funds can pay their taxes bill off. Finally, make Congress retire on Social Security and Medicare. I'll bet both programs would be fixed pronto! It can't get any easier than that!!
