Help the Economy by Falling in Love

Love is the answer!

A time-proven theory for helping the economy is too encourage and facilitate many more people to fall in love!

People in this blissful, euphoric state spend: on dates, every form of entertainment, travel, clothes, restaurants (and they tip more), sporting events, exercise, motels/hotels, books. They give more gifts, give to charity, etc.

The”ripple effects” and “trickle down/up” elements of this theory come from these people exuding happiness, glee, joy, positivism, peacefulness, help for the planet, and other beneficial traits, which remarkably impacts all with whom they work, go to school, or recreate. This helps reduce societal stress and anxiety from the lingering effects of the recession, which in turn spurs more hope, entrepreneurship, drive, ambition, and energy.

Another byproduct of more people in love is that they make plans for a promising, bright future. They buy homes, furniture, cars; work harder, set goals, start new businesses.

So assist anyone you can to fall in love, including yourselves. It’s good for the soul, spirit, health, and the economy.
