You know that 14 trillion dollar bailout we had?

I'm going to show you what all can be done with it.

14,000,000,000,000
divided by
1,500,000,000
equals
9333.3

Which is how many of the worlds tallest building you could make with the bailout money.

en.wikipedia.org...

Building things like that would look totally awesome, and produce jobs for present and future times.

Lets bring down the project price.

The B-2 Spirit bomber. It costs \$737 million per a plane. Lets see how many you can buy with 14 trillion dollars.
14,000,000,000,000/737,000,000

18,995 jets.

Lets change it even more.

14 Trillion dived by 6,692,030,277, which is the total population of the world.

You could giver every single person in the world 2,092 dollars, and 4 cents.

Bail out money isn't the problem, it's where it's going that is.

Do you see any projects like the new building in Dubai going on here in America? Projects like that produce jobs.

Imagine Trillions of dollars going to find cures for diseases.
I think every disease can have a cure, not just a treatment, but a cure.

Cures don't make money, people being sick, needing medicine and treatment do.

What could 14 Trillion dollars do if it goes into the right place? Has the bailout money effected you in anyway? There has to be someone unemployed here on ats, considering 9.4% of America is unemployed. That's nearly 1 in 10.

Where is the future? Where are the huge cities, clean cities, where is the clean air? Why are we still using the same old planes? We have the capabilities to do great hings, but where is it all? 14 Trillion dollars can do a lot of things, it can be used for peace, or for making killing machines. It can be wasted, or can be used on great things.

What would you do with 14 trillion dollars? What would you have built?

My last question is... Why are we letting them slow us down to the future? We have great possibilities, but it is all being slowed down in the sake of making money.

Many things are possible, if only the money was used right.

I'm done with my rambling on, but I hope this helps someone think, I hope it changes someone. The world doesn't have to be the way it is.

Totally agree wth you dude. I have no idea why so much money has been thrown at bankers. I would have let them all burn and just give those that lost some savings some money back. They tell us the banks are making money again, but its not real money, they just buy and sell shares gambling whether they go up or down. They don't have any real interest in the companies whose shares they buy. They only interested in making a profit from short term speculation. I don't see what the point of it is.

Thanks for the input, I was hoping this thread would get more input, so ideas could be bashed together.

Yes its surprising that your thread hasnt attracted more input given that the subject is gonna affect everybody in a big way anytime soon. If it hasn't already.

I get the feeling that folk just feel totally helpless and can't do anything about it.

This is a total joke, that is 50times -100time -1000time the GDP that other 3rd world countries brings in per year.

That money could go to getting a bunch of 3rd world countries on their feet, and keeping them on their feet, in fact im sure that would sort out alot more problems if you gave it to other countries than to the USA

Then again, maybe the USA know's something that we dont that will prevent them from having to repay their debt, what they know is another story though
