What would happen to this country if....
 
I am not wanting this to get political...

Our Government spends 500 million here say for planned parenthood, Going to give Iran 150 billion etc. etc.

What would happen to this country (of 300 million or so people) if the Government decided to give every last man woman and child 1 million dollars.

What do you think would happen to the country? Would money then become worthless?

I have to say this is the most interesting question I have read in a long time.

First thing is everyone would want their taxes to be lower.

Big screen tv sales skyrocket in urban areas. Smart people see this coming and invest in Samsung, LG, and the like. Dumb people with big TVs still cant pay for medical or food or college because they bought TVs and cars. They then bitch about the minimum wage and the concentration of wealth. The cycle of dumbassery continues.

Though keep in mind, $300MM x 1MM is an absurd amount of $.

Yea but what about the economy... What would happen, I assume few would work so who would make the products domestically... Would we all starve because farmers decide to no longer produce food...

Nah, it would just inflate and then level out.

Probably a shortage of certain big ticket items as people who don't give a **** about financial security and the money savvy alike go out and buy them up because 'why not?'

Lots and lots of white knighting on SM of people who chose to give a big portion if not all of their $1M to increasingly obscure charities.

Could see a lot of business ventures started as people partner up.. Have to believe a big ol' real estate bubble forms for residential and commercial properties alike as people buy up some shit.

I'd guess an increase in air travel demand as people decide to use their new found fortune to see the world -have to believe that causes a little bit of a surge in fare prices, right? BRB going long on airline stocks.
