So here's my thoughts: We should organize a day perhaps in January that every person, business, and township across the U.S. spends (not donates to charity for tax write offs) 1% of their total cash flow. For most of us this would only amount to $1 - $100, but for those individuals, businesses, and townships sitting on millions and billions of cash, this could be a huge boost in our economy and help a lot of struggling people out there. Obviously the CEO of whatever company can't exactly go into a mall or store and spend $1million in a day, but they could distribute this money evenly to their employees as a bonus. I'm looking for more ideas of how these large sums of money could be spend, motivation for the hoarders to part with this 1%, ideas on how to spread this idea so that there is mass participation, or someone to tell me I'm an idiot. Thanks. Kaan
