    Hi guys! Hope all has been well!

    I wanted to get some feedback from you guys about an idea that could save our economy. It goes something like this...

    So we all know Apple has so much power and influence, its ridiculous. We also know that Ford automobiles don't have a good reputation oversees. So how do we change that, so people in other countries start buying our cars, and we can start exporting at a high volume?

    My answer: Get Apple and Ford to collaborate and develop a mutually beneficial relationship and create an Apple automobile OS that runs exclusively in Ford (much like AT&T's once exclusive partnership with the iphone)! Think about it. People are OBSESSED with Apple, and it's name could be stamped on every Ford automobile out there!

    But we can't just expect Apple to collaborate with Ford exclusively without some kind of incentive correct? Well... what if Ford decided to sell a portion of their company to Apple, so the profit margins Apple makes is dependent on how well Ford does!

    Of course... this probably will never happen, but I can dream right? What do you guys think?

    I'm no economics expert. Sometimes it feels like I have to pull my own teeth to update/balance my checkbook.
    I think the economy has become way too complicated of a beast for just one quick fix solution like your proposing.

    I think the best way to fix things (And PS will think I picked up your pipe) is to simply get rid of money.
    We create a utopian society where everything is free, traded or worked for in exchange.
    It won't happen because of all the greed. But it would be much better than what we have now.
