Overall, our national economy seems to be doing fairly well; however, I have some suggestions that I believe will help the economy even more and provide prosperity for all. Suggestion No. 1: This one if for the automobile dealerships. An example: Dealers currently sell vehicles with a list price of $60,000 for $48,000 after a discount and advertised savings to buyer of $12,000. I suggest the dealers increase the list price to $95,000 and sell it for $48,000. This would save the buyer $47,000 instead of only $12,000. This is a 292 percent increase in savings. This concept could be applied to other consumer goods from groceries to clothing. The grocery stores could start putting a MSRP of $6.50 on a can of beans and sell them for $0.85, a savings of 87 percent. We could ass become more wealthy in just a few weeks. Just imagine the amount of money we could save. The wealth accumulation would soon allow us to pay off the national debt within a year or so.
