The things you can do and learn online for General Paper (and Project Work).

Short article. ‘The White House is asking Congress for $70 billion in new emergency funds for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and will seek an additional $50 billion for those wars early in fiscal 2007.'(Emphasis mine) 

Compare this with Singapore’s estimated expenditure of SG$30.6 billion in the 2006 Budget. The estimated total outlay for 2006 in the White House Budget is US$2,708 billion (source: 28; Dunno if I’m reading this correctly).

Other key figures:

United States

  • GDP – US$12,601.0 billion (Source)
  • Population 281 million (Source)

Singapore

  • Per capita GDP – US$30,228 (Source)
  • Population 4.42 million (Source)

Needs a bit of cleaning up for the GDP figures to be comparable
