Just Fix It!

Let’s face it: Many Americans are concluding their government is broken. From health care to education, housing to stocks, the people elected to help seem to be doing just the opposite. So who has the answers—and how can we help ourselves?

Newsweek and The Daily Beast want to hear about your thoughts on our biggest problems, how you would fix them, and the people you know in your own backyards who are making things work.

We’re calling our search “Just Fix It.”

Each day we’ll feature a specific question related to certain aspects of the American economy. Today’s question: What can we do to create jobs in our local communities? Feel free to answer with a reblog or simply email justfixitideas@gmail.com.
