If you had a trillion dollars and a year to spe nd it for the good of the world and the advancement of science\, what woul d you do?

 \;

A trillion dollars is an unimaginably large sum\, yet it’\;s only around one pe r cent of world GDP\, and about the valuation of Google\, Microsoft or Ama zon. It’\;s a much smaller sum than the world found to bail out its b anks in 2008 or deal with Covid-19. Within this book\, Rowan explores fasc inating options for how the money could be spent.

< o:p> \;

How to Spend a Trillion Dollars is the ultim ate thought experiment but it is also a call to arms: these are all things we could do if we put our minds to it - and our money.< /p>
