Perhaps the Royal Family can be convinced to contribute more to the economy than they do now
They contribute quite a lot actually - vast numbers of foreigners spend lots of money visiting the UK to gawp at them. And several of them achieve this by continuing to work a seven day week far beyond normal retirement age.

(Not that any of us are ever likely to be able to afford to retire, of course, now that the USA has screwed the world's financial system.)
