    I already made a thread to figure this out, but it went in a different direction. What do YOU want to see the president do with the economy?

    What can the president do for the economy? I am not an economist, I'm a businessman, and a small one at that. I know how to run a company, but those rules don't seem to apply to our government.

    For example:

    Don't spend more than you make.

    Shop around, get the best price.

    Don't price your product higher than the market will bear.

    Cut out the fat keep the lean, Bureaucracy is productivity's worst enemy.

    Promote on results, not seniority.

    You can help the economy without touch the private sector as Bush has been doing, Kenesian economics.

    I'd like to see an end to the bailouts and let the market decide the fate of these companies. This, to me, is preferable to the imminent collapse of the dollar, which is the direction we're currently going in.

    Actually the fault of the current economic crsis almost entirely goes to Bush.
