Are you joking?

The G20 have generously pledged a phenomenal trillion dollars to solve the global recession (that's $1,000,000,000,000; that's 12 zeroes to the left of the decimal point; a trillion is a million million dollars. I'm thinking where is the money coming from? and if its possible to magically "find" this kind of money, why haven't we dipped into these "funds" before to eradicate global poverty?). Do the numbers stack up?  Is it going to make a difference, or is it simply the cruel humouring of politikal speak? What do you think?

  1. Isn't it sad that we'll rush to spend money to bail out the rich, but not the poor?
