700 billion

700 billion dollar bailout for wall street... ok, so there's around 6 billion inhabitants on the planet, right? so the proposition is to give 100 billion dollars per capita for the entire planet to save wall street. i'm no economist, but surely there's not that much money floating around in the budget. and if there is, please make my 100 billion dollar check out to "Cash." Actually make it out to "Dollar Coins." i want to swim in it like Scrooge McDuck.

edit: okay, so i suck at math (worse than an rhet major... dayum). but still, thats a boatload of money to conjure out of thin air. and i still want my money in coin form.

Your math's a little off. It would only be $116.66 for each person in the entire world. But, it would be about $2,300.33 per person in the U.S. So they can send me my check any time.
