Federal budget gap tops $1 trillion through June

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The federal deficit has topped $1 trillion with three months still to go in the budget year, showing the lasting impact of the recession on the government's finances.

In its monthly budget report, the Treasury Department said Tuesday that through the first nine months of this budget year, the deficit totals $1 trillion. That's down 7.6 percent from the $1.09 trillion deficit run up during the same period a year ago.

Trillion

I did some thinking about what 1 trillion is. How can we grasp the size of this number. I took my calculator and started doing some lookups in Wikipedia. This is what I came up with to get a grasp on the number "1 trillion". I thought I share it with you.

Alert – Federal Reserve To Print $1 Trillion Out Of Thin Air

Dear @profile_first,

In a shocking development that I frankly hoped we’d never actually see, the Federal Reserve dropped a bombshell today and announced that it is going to create an extra $1 trillion dollars out of thin air to support the spending desires of the US government and to drive down interest rates for mortgage borrowers and savers.

Flat out the Federal Reserve said, as plain as can be, that they are going to be printing money directly to support the borrowing needs to the US government and US consumer. Below I explore this outrageous turn of events. Please note that I have not had much time to digest this incredible news and that I reserve the right to add to (or amend) my thinking over the next few days. » Read more
