- Shop locally. Support the economy by shopping at your local stores. These places offer jobs to your community. Avoid shopping online, these businesses have very little over-hang. They don’t pay cashiers, maintenance workers, and they don’t have their trash picked up by the local guy.
- Buy or build a house. If you have been renting, then you need to wake up. Now is the time to buy. Interest rates are at their lowest since the 60’s and 70’s. If you are picky, then build a house. Not only are you getting a good deal, but you are offering jobs. This is a great time to make this kind of investment.
- Buy stock. Sure the stock market is horrible, that’s great for someone like you. If you haven’t bought stock, buy now! It’s rock bottom, and that is when it’s time to buy! Buy low, sell high. That’s how you make money!
- Start a business. This is a little more risky. If you plan right, and you have the extra cash, you can help create some local jobs. Small business owners prove to be the best remedy for a troubled economy!
