Russell Crowe Cures The Credit Crunch

by | 1st, October 2008

“I WAS thinking,” Russell Crowe tells US TV host Jay Leno:

The New Zealand-born actor announced, during a US TV talkshow appearance, a plan to cure America’s financial crisis … Crowe believes the US Government should give each American $US1 million.

His reasoning was that the US has a population of about 300 million, and a $US300 million outlay was a fraction of the $US700 billion financial bailout package rejected by politicians in Washington DC yesterday.

He should have thought a little harder though—a $US1 million handout to 300 million people would cost $300 trillion.
