Most rich peoples' billions just sit there on a bank account.

Wrong. Most rich people's money is invested in various securities - shares, bonds, etc. Their money therefore stimulates the economy, just like anyone else's

Even if they were to keep all of their money in a checking account, the bank would lend that money out, and again - it would stimulate the economy.

Very few (if any) rich people bury their money in their back yard... Smile | :)
If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.

--Winston Churchill
