(Same error with $2,000,000,000 trillion. Which = $2 billion trillion.)

And the unemployment rate in US is reaching 10%. So 1 out of every 10 will be out of a job. That's 30 million people. Or 30,000,000 out of 300,000,000.

But disregarding these number errors, I agree with:

I went back and double checked my resources and you are correct about the population being in the millions not the billions. I've got to hunt and peck better.

As for the unemployed, on 12/05/08 the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported those that are unemployed are at 10.3 million not 30 million. Our unemployment rate went from 6.6 to 6.7%.
