How much is a Trillion $?
President Reagan said the best way to understand a trillion dollars is to imagine a crisp, new stack of $1000 bills.
If you had a stack four inches high, youd be a millionaire. A trillion-dollar stack of $1000 bills would measure just over 63 miles high.
$55,000,000,000,000+ U.S. Debt???
If there is one thing I would encourage my blog visitors to read is this one post and take the time to watch the linked video.
A 40-Year Wish List
“Never let a serious crisis go to waste. What I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things you couldn’t do before.”
I’ve decided to create my own blog. Historically I send emails out to folks – kind of a spammer I guess. I thought I would try this approach rather than sending everything via email.
The topics I intend to cover are miscellaneous things like the economy, finance, sports, advice, humor, etc. I don’t see this being focused on one particular topic, but rather an ecclectic collection of things I find interesting.
We’ll see how it goes!
