$47,000: With this amount of money I could attend Rice University for a year, and replace my "car" with a Mustang Mach 1. Really, it's what every person in the United States owes the government right now. I, you and our children will deal with paying out this mess America is (shamefully) known for. Not only are we effected severely, but the whole planet pays the price. It cannot be good that for every dollar we spend, 40 cents is borrowed. This makes our title and reputation as "economic capital of the world" less appropriate every day. As I close this blog, the USA debt was $14,802,967,860,015.41; it has raised $38,245,284.11 in the 30 minutes it took to write this. Let's retire Keynes. I need a car.
