Let other countries pick up a check.

My suggestion is to sell things, food and also offer services to countries like China for a fraction of a real cost, while the leftover of a real price has to be payed by that country as a debt to the banks to whom the US is indebted. I mean they pick up the check for the US in a form of taking part of the debt that equals the price redaction size.
Thus, there is more opportunities for more American entrepreneurs to enter... more »

Invest in hard working Americans not big business.

The average American needs to have a chance to start a business without putting up their first born child. My suggestion is give people a chance let people apply for start up Grants that have a business outline approved through professionals. Not only will it build trust again but pick up the economy with jobs and tax revenue. Invest in hard working Americans with a select amount of Grants with a cap of no more than 275,000... more »

Reduce Barriers to Entry for Clean Energy

Given the budget crisis, we can only afford initiative that don't cost a dime so here's one that will make money for the government. Stop all subsidies and tax preferences for conventional energy supplied by existing commercial energy companies. That will generate revenue for the government, reducing the deficit, while marginally raising the cost of conventional energy and reducing the gap between it and renewables.... more »

Heathcare for all

I suggest we dump Obamacare and replace it with National single-payer catastrophic health insurance, severing once and for all the job and innovation destroying linkage between healthcare and employment and allowing entrepreneurs to risk their fortunes without also having to risk the health of themselves and their families.

A $ Trillion for Entrepreneurship

I suggest we give ten million $100,000 dollar grants to entrepreneurs. Make it a lottery that you enter by passing a basic screening for the obvious flakes. It will cost the same as the bank bailout, so let's monitor the results and see how many jobs we create. Easy to predict more since the bank bailout didn't do squat except keep a bunch of overpaid idiots from getting the boot, which they so richly deserved.

National Renewable Portfolio Standard

I suggest you create a National RPS of at least 30% by 2030. Recent studies show that renewable energy is the fastest growing sector in the economy, and is creating the most jobs, and generating power that is less expensive than than new conventional energy (even if it does cost more than conventional energy from old fully depreciated power plants that are due for replacement).

But, the United States is one of only... more »

Hire the Mafia to service SBA loans

I suggest you hire the Mafia to do distressed SBA loan workouts. I've been through it with both and when it comes to integrity and dependability, the Mafia has the SBA beat hands down. They might get a little rough at times, but you can negotiate with the Mafia, know what they agree to will stick and they move fast.

Legalize Marijuana

I suggest you legalize marijuana at the federal level and let the states decide what to do about it. Many will follow rather quickly, creating jobs in cultivation, distribution and retail, tax revenue for the government, an improvement in our trade balance, and a bit less revenue for the drug gangs.

Resetting Credit Scores

I suggest that the government would consider negotiating with the 3 major credit bureaus. A great way to ignite our economy would be to have a "year of jubilee" so to speak. If the credit bureaus would reset credit scores in certain cases, it would truly stimulate spending and set the table for a great economy... this in turn will allow people with low credit scores to purchase products such as furniture, cars... more »

In an Emergency "Remove Barriers"

Relax (significantly) the regulatory environment. For example: Selective regulatory immunity could be granted (only) to start-up companies that may exist and are monitored in an accredited business incubator for a period of two years. Also remove extensive tax burdens on very basic needs like gasoline for business travel, etc. All this may be monitored by incubators that achieve "Start UP America" accreditation. Start... more »

Foreign student entrepreneurs

I am a foreign student and am starting a business. Then i learned that if I incorporate my company here in US, as the founder I can only get 10% of the equity at most, just because I am a foreigner. This is a concrete barrier for foreign startups.

Make international travel easier for foreign business owners

I and my wife started our online business about 3 years ago right after we obtained EAD (working permit). Our current immigration status is I-495 pending. Travel document Advance Parole enables us to travel outside the U.S. and come back w/o visas. However, the processing time for AP now is longer than 4 months and the AP is valid for 12 months. The extra long processing time has absolute negative impact on our business... more »
