Why? Because, once again, the initial figure of 16 trillion that jumps out of the Federal Reserve audit is more money than all the goods and services produced by every single person in the United States for any given year. As pointed out earlier, it is also greater than the entire amount of debt ever racked up by the United States in its 235-year history. This needs to be kept in mind front and center, and for that reason deserves reiteration.
The 2010 Census estimated there are 114,825,428 households in the US. Sixteen trillion dollars in secret bailouts adds up to $139,342 per household.
However, the full figure of $26 trillion adds up to nearly a quarter million dollars per household -- $226,430 to be exact.
When you put it in those terms, the full weight of this gargantuan theft becomes nothing short of staggering.
Imagine that your family had a quarter million dollars saved, and then some thieves took it from you. What if the thieves then admitted what they did -- but the police and the legal system, more aligned with the thieves than with you, didn't care to help you do anything about it? Yet that's what just happened to every single family in the United States!
Every single adult in the United States who was unemployed or on public assistance could have been given a job -- so that they could lead happy, fulfilling and prosperous lives -- with plenty of money to spare. How so? A vast public works program could easily have been created to stimulate the economy. This money would then have become an investment in the country and its people, instead of a one-time gift to banks, foreign governments and big corporations.
What Jobs Could We Have Created?
We could have restored our crumbling roads, sewers, gas mains and bridges, the most decrepit in the industrialized world.
