I've been thinking. If one person won a billion dollars, and gave a million to each person in America, what exactly would happen? Would it even be possible? I'm guessing everyone would quit their jobs? Or if you did keep it, would you be bored with everything life would have to ofter? Just curious what everyone else thought about it.

Inflation. I think you also overestimate how far a million dollars goes. Especially when people are suddenly given it and use it recklessly.
Also this isn't advice.

>Would it even be possible?
Afraid not. $1 billion would be enough to give about $3 to everyone in America.

lol someone believed the meme...

You would be taxed so high that the 1 billion would be a fraction of that. I would give some to charities/hospitals. People that really need it.

You might want to use your share to buy a calculator. One billion would provide one million for one thousand people.

More serious answer. If everyone in America suddenly found one million dollars in their pockets, prices would leap up to match, until everything was pretty much where it is now, just with higher price tags.

It is called hyperinflation, and actually happens to weak economies every few years - to keep the economy flowing the government pumps more money into the system, and suddenly bread costs two million zlotys.

I'd ask them to put me on the ten million dollar bill

Falling for the bait.
USA has 320 million people
1 million each is 320K billion

Invest that billon in the American education system, you might be beyond help but with your money future generations don't have to be idiots.

Yeah, a lot of people might quit their jobs at first but this would probably happen. Everyone would be worse off in the long run.
