It’s just a number…

I remember when I saw this clip from Austin Powers and laughed because no one could fathom 100 billion dollars.

Now, in article from, an economist actually says:

“A trillion is not a ‘bleak’ number, per se. It’s just a number. We might need two trillion,” said the University of Texas’s James Galbraith in an email. “Deficits have to grow. They will grow. Please get used to it.”
