Dear Mr. Cowen (Irish Prime-minister)

Please find below my suggestion for fixing Irelands economy:

Instead of giving Seven Billion Euro's to the Irish Banks who will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.

You can call it the Republican Retirement Plan:

There are about 1 million people over 50 in the work force. Pay them 7 million Euro apiece severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

1) They MUST retire. One million job openings - Unemployment fixed

2) They MUST buy a new car. One million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed

3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage – Housing Crisis fixed

4) They MUST send their kids to school/college/university - Crime rate fixed

5) They MUST buy 100 Euro of alcohol/tobacco a week .... and there's your money back in duty/tax etc

It can't get any easier than that!

P.S. If more money is needed, have all members of government pay back their falsely claimed expenses and allowances.

Sometimes the easiest solution is the best!! (y)
