Another thing.... inner city kids don't know how to swim. If someone wanted to win an election, they would be smart enough to fill up a bunch of garbage trucks with water and drive them into the basketball neighbourhoods with a bunch of life guards on board to teach the kids. This would also restart the economy, because after swimming the kids would be hungry and would go to local businesses to steal snacks. Then things would take care of themselves.

I have many good ideas for starting the economy that are sure starters.
