While trying to figure out where our government went wrong in fixing the economy, I started crunching some numbers. I realized that while our
government spent large amounts of money bailing out major corporation, they did little to help out it's citizens. Our government has spent 11
Trillion dollars bailing out major corporations but only 3 Trillion has been invested. You can track it all here.
Here is how many zero's are in trillion. 1,000,000,000,000 thats twelve zero's.
In just the stimulus package alone our government spent 1.2 trillion dollars.
The census bureau only reports that there are 308,939,673 in the US. If you were to do the math it would come out to be $3884.25 per person
with just the amount of money spent on the stimulus package. It would have helped the economy greatly, its known as trickle-down economics.
Except instead of tax breaks helping the rich and the money trickling down to everyone else. Everyone else would have the money and it would trickle
down to all of the businesses.
Now to make things work, anyone who was an dependent would get $1,000. The rest would be split between everyone else. It would help people's debt.
They would spend their money on stuff, making the supply and demand go up. Effectively bailing small businesses and major corporations by increasing
their stocks, as well as creating more jobs due to the increase in supply and demand.
And like I said that is just with 1.2 trillion dollars. Only a tenth of what our government spent to help the economy, but the way they did it did not
The only questions that this seems to leave is did our government spend the money the way they did on purpose? And if so why?
