What Would You Do With $1 Trillion?

Reported by Ellen - May 27, 2010 -

Our friends at Brave New Films note that the cost for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will hit the $1 trillion mark this weekend. How fitting that this should occur on Memorial Day Weekend! In honor of this milestone, Brave New Films has devised a Facebook game/application called, "How would YOU spend $1 trillion?" You can put various items in your shopping cart - an island, a major airline, a million affordable housing units, e.g. - to make the point about the cost of war at home. I "purchased" each of those items and still had more than $772 billion left over! Check out the video after the jump which details the more serious side to these expenses for Americans.
