MAGNITUDE OF BILLIONS
I have been throwing the Incredible
figures at your head. Neither J oil nor
anybody else bus the falute.it conceit'
tlon of what ono billion dollars really
Is. Wo speak familiarly of billions its
u commonplace, imt most of us live
our lives In terms of hundreds.
I havo shown you thnt every one
of us, man, woman and child, lu this
country, paid last year $r;t."7 each
trwattl the support of the government.
Of course, every person dues not pay
exactly $X.", A great many pay
more ami some pay less; but those
who pay tho must try to take It out
of thote who pay tho least by Increas
ing tho prices of what they have tt
sell, or of services rendered or work
performed, ko that It averages out at
$K1,77. Some pay more than their
shnre. others pay less. This Is culled
an Incident of taxation. The whole
point Is, that wo all pity; thnt wo pay
nuw more than w ever paid before;
nnd there Is no present prospect of our
pitying less for some jears.
In this way we havo all paid our
shore In tho World war. Tho net cost
of (hat enterprise to tlnte has been
$2l,10O,tHj(j.iHK. or. Including our loans
to foreign governments, which hnvo
not been repaid, KUI.I.VHXMHK). Theo
nm olllclul treasury figures. Do not
let your eyes run over them lightly,
Thlrty-threo billion four hundred anil
flfty-llve million dollars Is an nlmott
Incomprehensible sum. Tho cint of
running the nntlenal government Is
now nrouml ?5,(m)0,001I a year. The
e.xTt say that for the next two or
three years the cost of the government
will not descend below about S-I.IKJO,-000,000
I want you clearly to understand thn
Immensity, the magnitude, the over
whelming size of such sums. We
ch'ntter about billions nowadays with
out In the least knowing what U n
billion. Let me try to bring It homo
to you. it Is now, roughly speaking.
1020 years since the birth of Christ.
Wo do not know precisely ami accu
rately nt what hour nml on what day
Christ wm born. But under tho Gre
gorian calendar, according to which
wo now reckon time, wo have
record of the days since January first
of the year one. Anno Domini. From
the beginning of the year ono to Jnn
unry 1, Ifr.'l, there elnpn-d nhotit 701.
207 days, or, to reduce It further,
1(1,830,-103 hours, which ho'ng reduced
ngnln, means I.W.W.M.-im) minutes.
I will ask you to remember that, tho
whole history of tho modern world
from the llrst second of tho year out)
to tho last second of the year 1(120
has been compressed Into l.OOU.SUI.-ISO
Now let us suppose thnt with tho !
permission of tho Roman authorities
Hie United .States hail established n !
disbursing olllcer at Jerusalem on tho
first day of tho year one with InstrtiC'
lions to pay out $5 n minute day and
night, .Sundays and holidays Included,
right down through tho centuries to
New Year's day, 1021.
Suppose ho hail been given S.'i.lKO,
005,700 to start him on his long spell
of spending. Thnt Is ono estimate of
tho sum that It cost to run this gov
ernment lu 1020. On the morning of
January 1, 1021, this mythical disburs
ing olllcer, giving money nway at tho
rate of S.1 n rnlnute, would havo spent
only $3,OIO,121',-I00, and would still
be ono of the richest men lu the
world, for bo would have left on
hand JftK!.8&,!,.'iOr! of the orlglnul sum.
Paying out nt tho rate of S.' a minute
for mori than 1000 years, ho would
not have kept pace with the coit of
upkeep of (his government for the one
single year 1020.
Huppo.se this Imngmnry government
Bpeniler hnd been authorized to pay
out at tho rate of $2,1 a minute through
the centuries. H would not havo
finished, on January 1, 1021, paying
for our share of tho cost of the World
war by sonio $78-1, 0.10,0 CO. Ho would
have that much left over after paying
out $2.1.22:5,003,010, He would havo been
paying out nearly -10 cents every sec
ontl the clock ticked for moro than 10
centuries without being nhlo to dis
charge our share of the World war
Do you ever bother your bond about
these bushels and bushels of dollars
that you contribute to tho support of
tho government? You earned them.
You know whether thej-enmo rnslly or
not. Do you know where they go
after they lo-tvo you, how tltey nro
spent, whether wisely or foolishly!
It's nil your monoy, contributed for tho
proper nml economic conduct of your
iHiMnefK. Thero Is no such thing as
government money, Tho govern ment
never earned n cent.
You own tho government and you
Mipport it, nnd It Is merely adminis
