From a vantage point within sight of the Hollywood Sign, seated beneath a palm tree. Tom Levine takes you on a twisted, exploratory tour of popular thought, the upside-down theories of classical economics, politics and other strange things. Tom talks all things Los Angeles, bright new ideas and complex topics of interest to creative thinkers and discerning skeptics. L.A. locals state with pride, "You can surf in the morning and ski in the afternoon". Well, if you get a really early start, it's true. Sometimes. Los Angeles is the City of the Angels and Tom Levine is a Native Angelino.

Ever considered just how much a trillion dollars really is?

In Episode 4, Trillions and Billions and Cares, we find out just how many zeros are attached to the latest round of Congressional appropriations.

The CARES Act Round Dos,  goes into effect Monday, April 27, 2020. The Small Business Administration (SBA) is ready to open the lending window at 10:30am ET. 

Will they have more success this time around? We will know soon enough.

We explore and ponder the immediate and longer term impact of "helicopter money", ZOOM media, and potential changes to consumer behavior.  

We ask, "Will you go back to your WEWORK shared office space?"  How about going to a movie, a concert or a crowded bar? 

Riddle me these answers and perhaps Dorothy will join you for a rendition of "Trillions and Billions and CARES.
