TITLE: To Implement an Automatic Government Stimulus Program
MAJOR AREAS TO BE AFFECTED: Average citizens, legislators, American businesses
SUMMARY: “When the economy is not doing well, most economists concur that some form of government spending should take place in order to alleviate the problem. However, in the present day, representatives worry about tying themselves to a stimulus package because it may affect future campaigns for re-election. Having a system in place that saves money and spends it wisely would prevent monetary flow during periods of financial stagnation and would allow for representatives to not receive negative publicity.”
