A message for Julia Gillard

Please find below our suggestion for fixing Australia ‘s economy.

Instead of giving billions of dollars to banks that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan. You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan…there are about 10 million people over 50 in the work force. Pay them $1 million each severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

1) They MUST retire. Ten million job openings – unemployment fixed.

2) They MUST buy a new Australian car. Ten million cars ordered – Car Industry fixed.

3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage – Housing Crisis fixed.

4) They MUST send their kids to school/college/university – Crime rate fixed.

5) They MUST buy $100 WORTH of alcohol/tobacco a week …… and there’s your money back in duty/tax etc.

6) Instead of stuffing around with the carbon emissions trading scheme that makes us pay for the major polluters, tell the greedy bastards to reduce their pollution emissions by 75% within 5 years or we shut them down.

P.S. If more money is needed, have all members of parliament pay back their falsely claimed expenses and second home allowances.

    Where to Start…. well one million times 10 million. is 10 Trillion dollars, we cant come up with that much money. without making our dollar worthless. .

    10 million Job Openings, do we have 10 million job seekers, we now have rampant worker shortage.

    Pay off homes and buy new ones. this forces the prices of home upwards, and now makes it harder for the leftover workers to buy a home.

    Buy a car this now creates a massive flux in the market, which may force up prices, and pushing all other makers out of the market now makes a Duopoly which allows for future price fixing and no competition.

    the Crime rate would be great if it was guaranteed that school / uni student didn’t commit crimes. Or what about those who don’t want to attend university, or goto private schools. are we to force these people?

    $100 of Booze or Cigs., again what about people who don’t smoke / Drink. also we now get a epidemic of Alcohol abuse and Tabacco additions. this leads to medical issues and an overcrowding of the hospital system..

    I’m sorry but while you are suggesting an idea which on the surface makes sence (more money people spend, the better we all are). this idea lacks an understanding of the Economy as a whole.
