What policies/legislation would you like to see that you feel would aid in the recovery of the U.S. Economy?

I apologize in advance if this question is misguided or poorly worded. If on the hypothetical chance that the 2016 election provided a bipartisan forum open to any suggestion you could provide, what would the intended strategy be? The goal would not be to encourage you or your firm's personal wealth, but to increase market stability, employment, or any other feature that you feel would be best for the economy. Your suggestions can range from introducing new policy to taking out current regulation.

I know its irrelevant, but the reason I am asking is to see if there are any policies a wide spectrum of workers in the financial industry can agree on. Watching the current election debates, interviews, etc. give me the vibe that disagreement is simply to distinguish their stances on issues, not if they actually are willing to work with those of different political ideologies for a better U.S.

Thanks in advance for any consideration!

I would suggest the government just get out of the way. Seriously we would all be much better off if getting elected to government meant you just got a 2, 4, or 6 year vacation and you just went away.

The more laws you make the more you have to pour money into things that benefit no one but lawyers.

No taxation without representation.

Those who can, do. Those who can't, post threads about how to do it on WSO.

Your vote should be weighted in proportion to how much you paid in taxes.

This should give the exact opposite result we have now where candidates get votes based upon how much 'free' stuff they promise to dole out.
