    Default U.S. Ecomony in Total Collapse

    Interesting,

    Sadly, it is too late to save U.S. economy in my opinion. For two years I have been saying the dollar is doomed, and just as expected, with banks collapsing left and right, bailouts that need bailouts, what a joke on the American taxpayer.

    With stock market now half of value it was just a few short months ago, and now the second country has gone under and is bankrupt, this is not a short term recession we are facing, it is a full blown depression as I see it. The world markets were again shaken by declining markets in U.S., combined with a total lack of trust of gov. decisions over and over again.

    Success to all, Mike

    The government & the administration need to show confidence in the banking industry.

    Default Stimulus Package Will Doom U.S. Economy for Decades with Depression

    Quote Originally Posted by ForexExpert View Post

    Agreed,

    But the real problem is the American taxpayer no longer has any confidence in government, former or current administration or banking which gov. has allowed to rip all us taxpayers off while they got sweetheart deals, or better put, many in congress got personal gains at the expense of taxpayer.

    Most people are clueless of what government has been pulling on the off on the U.S. taxpayer, but they will soon learn the truth with this current stimulus package approval. The below will highlight just how severe this problem is, not matter what lies we hear from our leaders in government, don't believe any of the BS we heard last night from Obama.

    Here is the best example of what a trillion dollars really is, and why it will be impossible to handle this debt load while the printing presses are humming in the background of last nights speech. This is a real eye opener. Talk is cheap, and so is the American dollar, about to totally collapse as many experts are reporting.


    WHAT IS A TRILLION DOLLARS?

    With the economic stimulus package estimated to cost around one trillion dollars, and Obama stating on January 7th that "he is admitting to trillion dollar budget deficits for years to come" here are some analogies that express the absurdity of the current situation in the United States.

    First - the math:
    1 (one)
    10 (ten)
    100 (one hundred)
    1,000 (one thousand)
    10,000 (ten thousand)
    100,000 (hundred thousand)
    1,000,000 (one million)
    10,000,000 (ten million)
    100,000,000 (hundred million)
    1,000,000,000 (one billion)
    10,000,000,000 (ten billion)
    100,000,000,000 (hundred billion)
    1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion)

    Now the analogies:

    First analogy: If someone spent one million dollars per day each and every day since Jesus was born, it would take another 731 years (beyond today)
    before one trillion dollars was spent.
    $1,000,000,000,000 / $1,000,000 per day = one million days
    one million days / 365 = 2740 years
    2740 - 2009 = 731 (years remaining)
    Second analogy looks at a million, a billion, and a trillion in terms of seconds. One million seconds comes out to be about 11Ĺ days. A billion seconds is 32 years. And a trillion seconds is
    32,000 years!

    The third analogy puts dollar bills end to end. If you laid
    one dollar bills end to end, one trillion dollars would stretch nearly from the earth to the sun. It would take a military jet flying at the speed of sound, reeling out a roll of dollar bills behind it, 14 years before it reeled out one trillion dollar bills!
    But the last analogy is the one that absolutely blows my mind. If you took freshly minted ***** new $1,000 dollar bills and starting stacking them one on top of another, it would take a stack over 68 miles high to reach one trillion dollars!
    Itís become almost surreal, like we are in a bad dream or something!

    Do a search for I.O.U.S.A. for video on just what the real debt load is for us taxpayers. This will shock you, as it has everyone who has watched this excellent economic overview on U.S. economy.

    Success to all, Mike
