|The language of political arithmetic is now, more than ever, completely removed from the language of everyday life - and that has happened with frightening speed. Using the concept of seconds, there are 86,400 in one day. A million seconds is 11 days. A billion seconds is around 32 years. And a trillion therefore is **32,000 years**. US deficit = $1,750,000,000,000 ($1.75 tn) and debt = $11,000,000,000,000 ($11 tn)!?!!|
