    Default 85 bn +? @ 1992 - 2013 : REAL Cumulative cost of "Fast food Workers" to US Federal & State governments ... maths help needed ...

    Cumulative cost of "Fast food Workers" to US Federal & State governments

    ... maths help needed as it has been quite a while since I have had to fiddle with a spreadsheet ...


    Factors I know that need accounting for

    -- The fast food sector was not destructive to the nations health 1901 to 1960, so ignoring the time segment

    -- The US fast food sector has grown since 1970, but backward imputations would have to be for shrinkage

    -- Wages have deflated by a factor of 10 perhaps for this sector

    -- Silver and Gold (50/50) might be needed to normalize the inflations and deflations

    -- Mergers & Acquisitions need to be accounted for as well as bankruptcies in the sector

    -- Subsidized wheat, beef, chicken, ... costs might be tangentially useful in the accounting maths

    -- A probable 1970 - 2013 number : 511 billion USD in cost subsidization = the US state and federal governments in principal own these entities in totality as no other way exists to pay off the debt
