In my post about the rumored tax-cut stimulus package being tossed around at the White House, I quoted Dean Baker, who had some ideas on what you could do to stimulate the economy in a fantasy scenario. Since Republicans aren’t likely to let much of anything pass, and a jobs package would be an argument for the elections, something to run on, I think it’s worth making it as robust and attention-grabbing, and as functional, as possible. For example, paying unemployed people to do stuff as a policy.
