Falling Off the $1 Trillion Cliff
Just how much is $1 trillion? Let’s put it into real-world terms. For that amount of money, you could do fantastic, life-changing things like:
* Provide jobs for 1 million music/arts teachers for a year, and
* Provide health care for 1 million children for one year.
And then, just for fun, you could also:
* Buy Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
If you did all three of these things, you’d still have $925 billion to spare.
