Holy crap!

Bailout costs more than Marshall Plan, Louisiana Purchase, moonshot, S&L bailout, Korean War, New Deal, Iraq war, Vietnam war, and NASA's lifetime budget -- *combined*!

In doing the research for the "Bailout Nation" book, I needed a way to put the dollar amounts into proper historical perspective.

If we add in the Citi bailout, the total cost now exceeds $4.6165 trillion dollars.

The RV lifestyle. Just the thing for the Financiapocalypse?

As we were driving to Scottsdale for a doctor's appointment, the wife mentioned how great it was to not own any real estate right now, due to the impending doom of the global financial system and whatnot. And then, unsolicited, she brought up living in an Airstream.

Now, I've been joking with her for oh, about five months that we should just sell off all of this crap we don't really need, and move ourselves into an RV (of the Airstream variety, perhaps) and live a semi-nomadic lifestyle.
