These kids did a math class project to calculate what one can buy with seven hundred billion dollars. Most items are what'd you'd expect from kids, like how many video games and such. But some are interesting, like how many teachers we could add, how many average CEO salaries, etc.

Of course, this is all in today's dollars. If this boat sinks $700 billion will be buying a lot less.

Interesting, so the average annual CEO salary on Wall Street alone should be just over $14 million dollars, some 300 times the working salary of the average American.
