- David Wells-Wallace, The Inhospitable Earth, pg 170
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but 100 M units at $30 k/unit is $3 trillion, not $30 trillion. So then the last number is $30 T, not $300 trillion.
Getting the arithmetic right means a lot to me, and the units, and the basic physics, etc. I'm baffled about why none of Well-Wallace's pre-publication readers or editors didn't see this error and correct it. I hope no one does this for my book.
