The WJ Federal Reserve (that's my personal central bank) is urging some investment in your local economy today. Buy some chocolate.
It's Friday, so it's okay to think about and purchase chocolate. Maybe a dark chocolate bar that you can break up into hunks and chew on for a few days would be good. Or maybe you will go for chocolate ice cream or a hot cocoa topped with whipped cream.
Maybe you don't have any money today but you have a chocolate bar in the drawer or a half empty carton of fudge ripple ice cream in the freezer. Or, maybe you are like me and feel no guilt about breaking open a package of Nestle Mini Morsels and sprinkling a few over ice cream.
Okay, let's go for getting rid of what we have. Eat it up and create some demand in your pantry cupboards.
This is what our economy needs -- demand. Business needs customers. Bodies need chocolate. We can stimulate the economy, one chocolate bar by one chocolate bar.
Let's get together on this one!
