So how would you kick-start the economy?

Dec 6, 2010 3:17:00 AM - thestate.com
The Associated Press asked people around the country to share their ideas on jump-starting the economy. Some responses:

More stimulus: Carolyn Morrison is a Wake County, N.C., school board member who has spent more than 45 years in education. The public school she attended as a child in Lumberton, N.C., was built by President Franklin Roosevelt's Depression-era Works Progress Administration. She wants more spending like that.

"Thinking back to Roosevelt and other presidents who faced this problem, I guess the stimulus package would be the closest to giving jobs as anything."


Amen to that: John Jennings, 56, of Charlotte, N.C., runs a nonprofit group that houses up to 18 ex-convicts re-entering society. He, too, wants another stimulus package.
