Jon Stewart: Breakthrough Economist

Every now and then, comedians make more sense than politicians. I like Jon Stewart's idea in last night's interview segment (it comes at about the 5:20 point in the segment below). Don't give the stimulus money to the banks, he suggests, give it to the people solely for use in giving to the banks to pay off consumer debt. Start everyone with a clean slate. Now there's a stimulus package I can get behind.
