Do you mean billion? The whole economy is only around $14T.

Yes. Fixed it. Thanks. Sometimes big numbers are hard to wrap your head around.

$14 billion here, $14 billion there, pretty soon you're talking real money.

This won't be the case for long. At this rate of spending, the economy is going to collapse soon enough.
