If you’ve listened to Top 40 radio anytime during the past two to three years, you’re likely familiar with the Bare Naked Ladies’ version of the song, “If I Had A Million Dollars,” as performed in the video above. On the other hand, if you’ve paid any attention to politics during the past year, you’ve heard politicians talking in terms of hundreds of billions — and even trillions — of dollars.
Flash forward a year or two and, taking into account the hyperinflation many warn the United States is about to endure, the lyrics of the popular song will require an update in order to remain relevant. Why? Because a million dollars won’t be nearly enough.
