12,000,000,000 ~ zero

Michael Lewis está com um texto hilário na Bloomberg sobre a Goldman Sachs, veja lá.


Let’s assume AIG transferred $12,880,560,250.34 of taxpayer money to Goldman Sachs. A Goldman outsider, asked to round this number, might call it $12,880,560,250.00. That’s not how we look at it; at Goldman we always round to the nearest $50 billion, so anything less than $50 billion rounds to zero.
