What would you do with 700 billion dollars?
The 700 billion dollar bailout that the government is trying to get passed to save the economy is causing quite a stir from the people in the United States. Seven hundred billion dollars is a lot of money, and can do a lot of things.
So the real question is, what would you do with all that money?
That’s $700,000,000,000. Eleven zeroes.
Maybe look outside America, and think about how much $700 billion could do in Africa. There are approximately one billion people who live in Africa, which means, if the proposed US bailout was to be divided between every African citizen, each person would be $700 richer. Think about how much change that would make.
With $700 billion, you could buy up to 2.8 million decently priced islands. Islands! Hell, with $700 billion you could probably buy your own country.
I am not an economist. I don’t know the answer to our economical crisis. We say give the money to us and let us spend it.
So how about it? A professional sports team? A whole league? Cars? Real estate? Toys? What do you want most in the world?
