Suppose you had borrowed one million dollars, but by the time you had to pay it back, your fortunes had changed so that you were able to pay back at a rate of a dollar per second. It would take you only 11 1/2 days to discharge your debt. Now suppose you were to pay back one billion dollars at the same rate. That would take 32 years. And a trillion dollars at a dollar per second? That, ladies and gentlemen, would take 32,000 years. Do the math.
