Mark Cuban’s Stimulus Plan

Scott Jagow Feb 12, 2009

NBA owner Mark Cuban is pitching his own little plan for creating jobs. You can read about it on his website. Cuban says he’ll invest in businesses, existing or start-up, that can show a profit within 90 days. The business cannot generate any revenue from ads. It has to sell something. Cuban says that’s the only way to get and stay profitable in such a short period of time. It can’t hurt, right?

Speaking of basketball, I’m very happy to report this score from last night: North Carolina 101 Duke 87.
