A Stimulus Package. Is this what your were thinking as the way to repair our economy?

Real Estate Agent with Howard Hanna - Avon Lake, OH 2006004434


Hey. So were you planning on a stimulus package as the way to jump start our economy?

What I find interesting about this whole stimulus package thing is the idea of borrowing to start the economy... It will come from us.  With all those great economic minds that are there or easily available to problem solve this issue.. all they could come up with was to was have everyone win the lottery at out grand children's cost.  To me it is just throwing money out from our own pockets to spend over. 

Sounds to be like a bad cycle that could be seen repeating over and over again. Look at those people who have repeatedly filed bankruptcy. They could not learn their lessen the first time. Or maybe they did learn their lesson and found out wow, this is an easy out.  I am concerned very concerned with this plan.

I would have expected something along the lines of control on bank operations and ways to jump start jobs and American market?  Just amazes me that we don't have good problem solving and planning going on. We have great minds out there, why aren't they being consulted?

Struggling to search for Avon Lake, Avon, North Ridgeville, Sheffield Lake and Sheffield Village Homes?  Need some easier way to do it on the go?  Trulia 
and Zillow are great programs however they are not local.  They are not current to activity at the minute and projections on values of homes are questionable based on global measures and not having local information as a local Realtor would.  So what to do? Add my search engine to your mobile devise or  computer and get direct and current home sales, open houses, know when a home is off the market and sold right away and find similar homes in the area.  The search engine has GPS function that you can activate on your phone  and with that it will give you comparables while you are in the driveway of that dream home.  Now how cool is that?

Stan, Just curious...unemployment is increasing every month (approaching 8% right now nationally). How would you solve that issue w/out having the government increase spending and hiring?

As Sean said, there are few families that have not been hit by unemployment. There is no "magic pill"

Without the stimulus package unemployment would continue to rise, interest rates would continue to rise, and foreclosures would continue to rise.  If all of these things continue to rise where do you think we as a nation will be in a year, in five years?  Something has to be done.  I believe in job creation, stemming foreclosures to help find a bottom and purchasing mortgage backed securities to lower interest rate.  I don't believe in spending any more than is completely necessary.  Let's hope on this round there are some rules on how the money can be used.

Stan:  The only way this would sound like a good idea... is if every dollar spent would bring back three or four or more times that amount in money moving in the economy, and in revenues brought in.  It would appear that this IS the case... at least to me.  I see it as kind of "priming the pump" to get things going again.  As far as "borrowing from ourselves"... that is what Bush did for eight years... in ballooning the deficit.  Did you complain when he was doing it ?

Sean- I don't have an answer. My point is that one would figure there have to be strong economists in Washington.  If not in Washington I am sure they could find them and get a brainstorming group started to come up with a plan that could be monitored / controlled that would be effective without such high spending.  You would think.  That was my point.  IF this is the way it has to be than fine. But do we know what has been looked at?

Mark -Good point

Karen-I was concerned than...

Vickie- if this has to be the way fine. But can we monitor how this is going to work. Or doee the money just need to be used anyway as long as get people buying again... this is not my field of work.. That is why I ask whether we have exhausted all our choices..

The economists ARE saying that we need to get people back to work. I don't like the debt, either, but doing nothing won't help. If you look at the items in the package, most of them DO seem to be geared toward creating jobs.
