Economic Solutions


  • Zambrano, Joshua David


A thorough discourse on the underlying issues confronting the U.S. economy, as well as proposals for fixing the crisis. The proposed solutions include placement of soldiers who wish to remain federally employed in a public works program upon return from the Middle East, replacement of free trade agreements with a tariff taxing imports by 90% of the difference in national minimum wages, and restrictions placed upon adjustable mortgage interest rates.
