For the economic geeks among us

Postby JK » Sat Dec 31, 2016 3:22 am

With the Star War new movie hype, there is this article on the cost of building the planet killer and the implications of the destruction. It is a fascinating read. A lot of zeroes involved in the numbers! Enjoy!

Haha.

I'm still wondering how we're able to sell 11 billion to saudi arabia, yet we can't build our own ships in a timely fashion? I guess it's easier to build small stuff and sell to desert dwellers? Or perhaps that 11 billion is only in promised equipment? Seems really sketchy to me.

Happy new year.
