F.A. Hayek rather beat you to the whole argument for an isonomic and predictable legal environment :)
Reminds me of that Discordian quote, "All statements are true in some sense, false in some sense, meaningless in some sense, true and false in some sense, true and meaningless in some sense, false and meaningless in some sense, and true and false and meaningless in some sense."
Hogwash for reality, but key to understanding human behavior.
10 trillion of anything is more than we have evolved to be able to process.
It is simply orders of magnitude beyond my comprehension, a class beyond "woo, that's alot of money."
So if I had somehow gotten ahold of this much money, I'm fairly sure I could not properly administer even a tenth of a tenth of percent of the interest. The vast remainder would have absolutely no value for me. I'm simply not smart enough to extract value from it.
So. The only rational act would be for me to skim the tiniest portion of it useful to me, then construct a giant swimming pool in which to dive into the remainder at my leisure.
