I am the average "Jane Smith." Is there something I can do to help get the economy moving? I suppose I could keep my credit card in my wallet, purchase the things that I need, instead of the thing that I want, and learn to live within my family income. Why is this so hard to do? Are we Americans afraid to say "No" to ourselves? Let's see! How many cars does my family ACTUALLY need? You think I could read the "fine print" on that contract, and not let other guys "get over on me?" Hm -m-m, I wonder, what do you think? Oh, one final thing, maybe, try a little kindness, integrity, and ethics.
