What to Do with your Economic Stimulus Check from the Government

Postby Richard Kaufman » May 10th, 2008, 11:59 am

When your economic stimulus check from the US Government shows up, please help stimulate our economy by subscribing to Genii or buying a book from Kaufman and Company or Genii. :)

A tiny part of your check will help Genii make it through these hard economic times.

Good idea. Of course some idiots who call themselves "economic experts" suggest saving your economic stimulus check as the best thing to do with it.

That is true, especially when it comes to personal investments, right now actually is the best time to purchase a flolder/ or folders due to the fact that the price is low. I'm too young to recall the economic crisis that happened in the 80's, but one of my student's parents made a fortune when the economy recovered and that is considering the fact that he risked what little he had. I would go into more detail, but I have not renewed my security 6 license in years.

On a 'sleightly' more magical note, I'll deffinately puchase an issue of "Genii" for this month. I would subscribe, but the Genii might make all my money disappear. =)

Thanks again for re-opening the threads to everyone Richard.

John - I once read that "...an economist is a person who can tell you tomorrow why, what he predicted yesterday, didn't happen today...".

I second RK on books.

Send it back or tear it up. Don't be part of the problem. It was a stupid idea in the first place. Do for yourself and stop thinking that anyone other than you should take care of you. Seriously, be responsible.
Those that say it can't be done have a long lineage.

Tear it up?

How will that help me? Unless I already make six figures a year...

No, the best thing I can do is spend part of that check here to support the best things I love in life.

And vote in November, for the possibility of change for the better.

I don't even get one of these checks and I've been propping up Kaufman Enterprises for nearly two decades.

All I ask, in these lean economic times, is that Richard buys me a beer at the next FISM. That's all I ask.

Please remember that we do not allow ANY discussion of politics here.

Now, when you get that big fat check, send $54 of it to Genii, please. :)

Hello King Richard!

Sorry, no books or magazines for this old boy.

When that federal eagle flys I am taking it to the nearest bodega, negotiate it, and put every dime of it on the pass line of crap table at Trump Plaza!

In terms of independent probability a much more sound investment than any securities.

+ RFB-ALL Comp to boot!
