Varnado, S. L.
March 1976
National Review;3/5/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 7, p215
The article presents several tips for improving the economy of the U.S. There is a need to break away from outmoded ideas regarding economics. There is also a need to eliminate a prevailing work ethic among U.S. citizens that inspired them to become rich. The date of a debt moratorium must be announced well in advance so that consumers can spend heavily, thus encouraging commerce and industry. Figures for finished housing projects must be considered. A strategy for enticing the unemployed to work for the government is presented.
