THE KIND OF MONEY WE’RE TALKING ABOUT

Ben Stein says (regarding the stimulus bill)

For the amount spent we could have given every unemployed person in the United States roughly $75,000.

We could give every person who had lost a job and is now passing through long-term unemployment of six months or longer roughly $300,000.

Is there anyone who couldn’t grasp inflation when you think of it like that?  If we all had $75k more, would we all be richer?
