The creator of ThinkOOB has written a book that contains 12 Outside Of the Box economic ideas! One of which is the ShopAmerica gift card which sounds like a great idea to me! It also includes an idea on using your 401(k) to pay off credit cards.
The goal is to come up with ideas to help the economy. All of the OOBonomic ideas are:
The great thing about this book is that Al Lewis (the author) gives the readers a chance to come up with their own ideas to be featured in another book and to win money! If you can come up with an idea that fits the above requirements, you can win alot of money! Al Lewis is offering a $1 million reward for the first economic idea published on his website ThinkOOB, to get into national plicy and $500 for any idea used in the next edition of OOBonomics!
Al Lewis wants us to start think Outside of the Box to fix our current economic woes. He encourages everyone to get creative and post comments (which can earn you $20)!
If nothing else, the book provides a few laughs. James Carville said, "OOBonomics has provocative, original ideas for everyone - Democrats and Republicans alike. Lewis explains them with humor and clarity, and with short enough words that even George W. Bush would understand them."
