I'm not an economist. Damn, I can barely balance my own checkbook and saving, well, that's something with which I struggle.
But just a few minutes ago, as I was entering some bills at http://www.wheresgeorge.com, I had a light bulb moment.
Since the point of registering bills at Where's George is to get said bills into circulation (read that as spend them rather than save them) and see where they go and a major help to the economic crisis right now is to get money circulating, ummm...why not combine the two? Heh...
Yep, that's right, folks! One way to help the economy is to register your bills at Where's George then go out and spend them rather than deposit them in the bank!
Okay, stop laughing! And don't throw rotten apples at me, either, Ima Saver! I told you I'm not an economist. But it could work. And it wouldn't cost us or the government more money. Mwaaahahahaha!
Oh yeah, you Canadian brethren can join in, too! Just go to http://www.whereswilly.com/.
