"again i would like to point out that if you use one million every day since the 1. jan year 0 you would not use a billion"
----------
Now...I'm currently brain dead from staring at code all day, but your math doesn't seem right. Here is my math:
-365 days*2012 years =734,380 days.
-734,380 days * $1,000,000=$734,380,000,000

I get seven-hundred and thirty-four billion, three-hundred and eighty million.

Did I screw that up?

@Ollie: While I don't think cronyism and capitalism are mutually exclusive, a quick check of both terms indicates that cronyism is concerned mostly with promoting friends to prominent positions in government or business (i.e. boy's club), and crony capitalism is where "...success in business depends on close relationships between business people and government officials."

So I think crony capitalism is a valid thing. It's just a combination of corrupt government practices intermingling with the market and players in that market.

Big city democrat politics at work. Tammany and Tweed look downright honest next to Bloomberg and his ilk.

patchgrabber, there's no such thing as "crony capitalism." It's an oxymoron, like "promiscuous virginity" or "retarded genius."You can have cronyism, OR you can have capitalism, but you can never have both at the same time. This is cronyism, pure and simple.

Fleecing the living is just capitalism doing what it does. Or I guess in this case crony capitalism.
