Thought provoking stuff!


1) They MUST retire.
400 thousand job openings - unemployment fixed

Would cost 400 billion, seems a bit pricey to solve just one problem

2) They MUST buy a new car.
400 thousand cars ordered - Car Industry fixed

We've no money to spend on roads, and it would cause havoc in terms of traffic congestion and our commitments to reduce carbon emissions

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

This would re-inflate a false housing bubble that still hasn't been allowed to deflate to the norm- if houses were at the market level people would be buying them. Exactly the wrong tack to take here in my view.

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

Ha I can think of a few students that weren't exactly 'squeaky clean' from my college days, I'm sure we all can!

5) They MUST buy 100 WORTH of alcohol/tobacco a week ..... And there's your money back in duty/tax etc

Jaysus, the HSE hasn't enough problems?

If only it were that simple :)
