one trillion - 1,000,000,000,000

Some people in the US government want to come put with a one trillion dollar coin.  Platnum, of course.  They think it will fix the economy.  I don't really understand what they plan to do with it.  I don't think they know either.  I doubt the local Wal-Mart would be able to make change if I used it to buy a Snicker's bar. But I've always learned that if a government starts printing a lot of money, the country gets ridiculous inflation.  And I doubt that it is so easy to fix a huge deficit.  But maybe it is a stroke of genius.  If so, maybe the government should make three and a half million of these coins, give one to everyone, and we'll all be rich!

  1. kinda reminds me of the movie Bruce Almaighty. When Jim Carrey's character is given the chance to be God for awhile, one of the first things he does is make everyone a winnder in the lottery. They each only win something like a dollar and half, though.
