Giclee Printby Giuseppe Arcimboldo
I awoke this morning with a somewhat foolish thought in my head. In order to shore up the banks and give some tax breaks the government should have merely done this: Suspend or reduce the capital gains tax (or give preferential treatment to s-t capital gains) for people who liquidated their investments and then placed those proceeds into banks that needed some shoring up. Basically, provide an incentive for people to put money out of one pocket and into another. Naturally, there would need to be some brain in the center so that the infusion is not so willy nilly that it would be useless.
Lots of other caveats I'm sure, but I truly wonder why I awoke with this odd thought clearly at the forefront of my mind.
I hope that you will click on Arcimboldo's link above and see some of his other innovative collage paintings.
