The Paulson Plan

Want to get a sense of exactly how expensive the Paulson Plan is?

1 million seconds is 11 days   

1 billion seconds is 32 years 

1 trillion seconds is 300 centuries 

If we take on as much debt as Paulson wants (well over a trillion dollars) and we pay it back at the rate of a dollar per second, it would  take 3 centuries to repay. And that assumes its "only" a trillion dollars . . .  it could be much, much more.

Watch the greenback go down the rathole.
