It's easy to talk about solutions but I would suggest; jobs, jobs, jobs! When people are working they have money to spend. The result is that their spending gives work to other people. (an injection into the circular flow of income). The next thing would be to get rid of government waste. If corporations were run like the government, they would go bankrupt. I believe that those people elected to public office should be held accountable for the overspending and misappropriation of government funds. Lastly, and I know that this is very idealistic, I would hope that our elected officials would learn to work together, putting party differences aside, for the betterment of our country.
