Buying stocks to boost the economy is like smearing grecian formula on the mirror to make yourself look younger. The stock market is going down the toilet because the economy (earnings actually) is. If you want to boost the economy, take all of your money out of the market and buy stuff. Stock prices will ultimatly reflect your effort. Inflating stock prices does nothing to help the country or its economy. It isn't patriotic to buy overvalued stocks--just dumb.
