With the current power ball lottery hovering around 1.5 billion dollars, I was wondering.....
What might happen if the winner decided to give every man, woman & child in America 1 million dollars each?
With one of the biggest problems facing America today being income disparity and seeing a lottery that's fixing to pay out a cash value somewhere in the neighborhood of 900 million, the winner could give away 300 million and still be left with 600 million for themselves.
My wife & I were discussing what we'd do with the money if we won and this came up as one of the options.
So, what do you think would happen?
Would this lead to total chaos?
Would everyone quit their jobs?
Would it end homelessness, poverty & welfare in America, even if just temporarily?
What would the long term implications look like?
Would it be good, bad or ugly?
What say you, ATS?

There's a meme going around on Facebook right now that if 1.3 billion dollars were shared with 300 million people, each would get 4.3 million dollars.
