Brazilians a part of Obama's stimulus package?
Here's a crazy idea, let the Brazilians come and fix the US economy. Here's how the plan goes.
The US government creates a lottery for middle class Brazilians. The prize is a free round trip ticket to a "surprise" city. It has to be middle class Brazilians because upper class has money and poverty level don't. This plan needs those with enough money. Hang in there, I'll explain.
So you give them the free ticket to a predetermined city. That city will be one that is suffering a bit with this economic crisis but is big enough to have some tourist points, a target, a Best Buy, Gap, and a decent sized shopping center with an array of shops to choose from.
The thing is, if you bring the Brazilian, they will shop. The prices in the US in comparison with Brazil are stupidly low. Add in that they won the ticket and they will go nuts! The ticket price plus what they would have spent anyway will go straight into the US market.
I figure 1000 Brazilians will inflate our economy like an freshly workout-ed Carioca Bottom.
Just look at my husband. The t-shirts he purchased alone could clothe half of Rio de Janeiro. But they were only $2 to $5! Times that buy a 100 and that's where we get you. Watch out China, we're getting sneaky up here.
