I was wondering which of these options will raise the economy the most (mine dropped a couple days ago and I've had the need to get it back up ever since):

"Just the other day, I got mugged in the broad daylight!" says ruffian Charles Thiesen. "And the ironic thing is I had just stuck up this other guy. When muggers are getting mugged, even I have to admit that crime has gotten out of control. We do need more police."

"The solution to crime is not more police!" says noted sociologist and occasional crime novelist Calvin Chicago. "Studies repeatedly show that crime is caused by poverty and poor education. Increase government spending in these areas, and crime will fall! Maybe not overnight, but it will happen."

"Yeah, good luck with that," says conservative leader and gun enthusiast Jazz Spirit. "Look, we do need more police, that's clear. But that's not enough. We need real punishments: sentences that will act as a genuine deterrent to people considering a life of crime. Like public floggings."

None of them.

Just go for option 3 :twisted:

I don't know that any of those affect your economy. I always pick the second one though.
