    worthwhile

    The faltering economy requires stimulus; money needs to be spent on worthwhile projects that address real needs while creating thousands of jobs.

    hi,
    can it be replaced with "worthy", please?
    thanks.

    Not a teacher.

    While both words basically mean the same, there is a slight difference. If you wish to use "worthy" it is generally followed by "of" something.

    E.G. The project was worthwhile.
    The project was worthy of my effort.
