“All this talk about “stimulus packages” and “bailouts”…

A billion dollars…

A hundred billion dollars…

Eight hundred billion dollars…

One TRILLION dollars…

What does that look like? I mean, these various numbers are tossed around like so many doggie treats, so I thought I’d … try to get a sense of what exactly a trillion dollars looks like.”

BTW – the suggestion that adding all this money to the supply will have no effect? BS. When you increase the supply of cash without reference to production, it’s called inflation or devaluation. Either these guys have learnt nothing from hyper-inflation lessons in history or they’re doing it on purpose.
