#1 Doing nothing would be "bold" action for this class of clowns.

#3  A lengthy slump is inevitable. The amount of pain & destruction can be somewhat ameliorated.

#4 Cutting corporate, capital gains and income taxes a minimum of 30% would be bold action.

This is just more of the "corporatism" (aka fascism) that the elites crave.

#5 Bold Moves.
Eradicate corporate, capital gains, sales and income taxes.

Regulate the credit part of the currency properly.

Have a Property (Land + IP) Value Tax to prevent rent-seeking.

Get rid of the "welfare" state, and replace with a flat citizens dividend.

Stupid Moves.
Punish Employers, Investors, purchasers and workers with a large fine.

Try to keep a credit bubble inflated.

Keep zombie businesses alive by draining good businesses.

Reward those who do least to help themselves.

#7 ...Consolidation of power in Washington and centralized control of the U.S. More globalization. More taxes. Ceding authority of the U.S. to groups like the U.N. More money for global warming. A sharp left turn towards socialism and communism and ecofacism...
