Number Numbness

OK – just how big is $700,000,000,000.00?  Assume you spent one dollar every second of every hour of every day.  How long would it take you to spend that much money – doing absolutely nothing else – just spending 700 billion bucks?

22,181.6 years

Assume 80 years for one generation – this amount of time would emcompass 277 generations.

That’s lots of great great greats on the grandfather line.

And this is just the additional amount above what they have already spent bailing out AIG and Bear Stearns and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
