Paris Hilton vows to save the economy
That's right! I have mixed feelings in writing about this because obviously Paris made that comment with the intent of getting some easy publicity.
But shopping to save the economy. It has a certain appeal to it, and it's actually the road to economic recovery that has been preached by politicians. That's what those stimulus checks were for.
But remember: Excess borrowing and excess consumption will not bring us out of a mess caused by excess borrowing and excess consumption. Unless you have as much money as Paris, stick to saving. Let someone else be the hero.
