I suppose that's the reason we have stimulus packages to begin with in the event all else fails. Besides, I don't think raising enough money will be a problem. If I know the human race well enough and how relatively impatient it is, cutting down an 18-hour flight from the U.S. west coast to Australia to just a few seconds would be a major relief and a big sell at the same time.
