Numbers and money

I can't commenting on the current state of economic floundry. To comment on it would assusme that I understood what was going on. I don't. I can't comprehend the amounts of money being tossed around.

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers. - Richard Feynman
