Good Day RickBurnett
We have a model right out of our history. You know, its like the senator from Florida, Bob Graham said in the 2004 presidential election: "You create jobs by creating jobs." By that he meant the direct, government creation of jobs.
Its what Franklin Delano Roosevelt did. His administration created the WPA, The Workers Projects Administration, which employed millions of people out of work, who then went to work to build a lot of the public parks we enjoy today; and they worked on various infrastructure projects.
We have a lot of roads and bridges that need fixing up! I believe that administration created the Rural Electrification Agency that brought electricity out into the countryside for the first time. As another analog, we might mention that there are still communities that are considered underserved, in terms of access to the Internet or "broadband."
Another thing Roosevelt did was to create roaming troupes of writers, actors, painters, musicians. He took these creative people, who were out of work, and put them on the government payroll. They were sent all around the country teaching people how to sculpt, putting on plays and musicals, giving concerts, and so forth.
This was the greatest dispersion of culture America had ever known. We had never had anything like it before or since. So, If I were president I would move in a much bolder direction and take a page from the New Deal.
