[6:30] Aus dem Midas vom 22.9. – was die US-Bailouts kosteten:
Back in November, a researcher by the name of James Bianco crunched the numbers adjusted them to inflation and discovered that the government bailout cost more than – are you ready for this? – the Marshall Plan, the Louisiana Purchase, the race to the moon, the S&L crises, the Korean War, The New Deal, the invasion of Iraq, the Vietnam War and NASA combined. The only single American event in history that even comes close to matching the cost of the credit crisis ($4.6 trillion) is World War II: Original Cost: $288 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $3.6 trillion.
Nur die Kosten für den 2. Weltkrieg kamen in die Nähe.
