Now that the war is finally over, now that the good guys finally won, I need to do one more, hopefully, last post.

This post is about the Stimulus. What a great word.

To me, it’s all very simple.

If you can’t find a way to make money off this stimulus, you are either stupid, lazy, or determined to just stay in your job and hope for the best.

I am not going to do your work for you, and help you how to find ways to make bucks off this bill. Because any dummy can see that when a huge bill like this gets passed experts will gather round it, and strike. Agricultural experts, broadband experts (maybe, hopefully, even laid off Cisco employees).   The world, in fact, will gather round, and muster all its resources to rally round this new American flag. Highways will be built, doctors will speak over their blackberries (and hopefully get some help on their outtahand loans and stop writing prescriptions to people who should not have them).

My prediction, and this will be codified by google, wordpress, and the rest of cyberspace: This bill will transform the world. It will generate a massive number of businesses eager to take advantage of it.

I have been following Paul Krugman’s columns because, well, he is much smarter than I am, but I am suprised he didn’t catch this simple fact. The little cottage industries that this bill will create will save us.

And we don’t have to do anything about it to make it happen, because we are an entrepreneurial nation.

It will just, simply, happen.
