So the US Government thinks that sending everyone $600 (or so) as economic stimulus will spin up spending and everyone will have new big screen TVs and expensive watches.
My check was deposited last night and this morning AMEX got a payment. Not exactly what government economists expected.
Apparently I am not the only one thinking this way. A lot of the finance blogs (including $1 Million to My Name) bring up this very point.
Then again, when I get my payout for the company buyout that just happened I am going to pay off a chunk of my truck and dump the rest in my IRA.
