How $8 a week can best boost the economy

Here are answers from many economists, here was mine:

In my view, fixing the banking sector is more important than getting
the stimulus right. So if you can afford to lose the money, go to a
large bank (more likely to be insolvent), find their most overpriced
service, and buy as much of it as you can. That way you are doing your
part to recapitalize our banking system.

If you’re stuck for ideas, just keep on using ATM machines, owned by
other banks, so you can pay large fees to take out small sums of money
from your checking account. When you need to, take all of your
withdrawals and deposit them back in the account once again and start
all over with the process.
