Okay, so guys, I don't understand. Why don't we just burn money to reduce inflation if we're so unhappy about it right now? I know it sounds really, really stupid. And I'm sorry for bringing that here, or whatever, but I've been wondering this for a while and I know there must be an issue or something with simply doing that but I haven't put any intense thought into it and I was wondering if anyone had an answer. Thanks ahead of time.

To put it into even more perspective, let's look at some facts.

With one trillion US dollars, you could give 140 dollars to every single person on earth.

If you had one trillion dollars, and you put it in a bank and forgot about it, your interest over one year would be $59,999,999,999.987, or $164,383,561.6438 a day

Seeing as how the average US house cost $317,000 in 2012, you could purchase
3,154,574 new houses, of which you could shelter every single homeless person in America- 633,782- and still have 2,520,792 houses left. Of those 2 and a half million houses, you could rent them out to tenants and receive, considering the average rent is $1057 for a 3 bedroom house, $2,664,477,144 annually. You could then put your annual income in the bank, and live off of an annual income of 44,407,952,400, all the while still renting out 2 and a half million houses.

But wait, there's more.

The average budget for a blockbuster movie (a movie in my opinion grossing 250 million or more) is 147 million dollars. So therefore you could single-handedly produce 6,802 blockbuster movies.

The average annual income for an american is $52,000. Therefore, if you had one trillion dollars, you would have 19230769 times more than the average american works 2000 hours for.

The problem with this is most of that money is essentially not really there, since we deal so much with credit and accounts and not in solid cash.

This whole post is implying the phrase "trillion dollars" is a popular phrase, what gives?

I cant be the only one that finds the irony in the fact founding fathers are printed on the current dollar, a currency based on debt. When they fought a war against the British to prevent getting a currency based on debt.

Wait this ain't right. A trillion has 18 zeroes.
