Patriotic Retirement Plan:
#1 Dec 9, 2009
It is truly sad how poor our math abilities have become.
If 40 million people got in line and you handed each one of them $1 (one dollar), that would be $40 million dollars.
If you handed each one of them $1,000 (one thousand dollars), that would be $40 billion dollars.
If you handed each one of them $1,000,000 (one million dollars), that would be $40 trillion dollars.
That amount of money doesn't exist. The entire US GDP is around 14 trillion dollars. If you printed $40 trillion dollars and handed them out to people, you have just made our currency worthless. It would make the cost of goods skyrocket. A car would cost $300,000 dollars.
If anything this is proof we need to invest in education, especially in math.
