What Can You Buy For $456 Billion?

What does $456 billion buy?

"According to World Bank estimates, $54 billion a year would eliminate starvation and malnutrition globally by 2015, while $30 billion would provide a year of primary education for every child on earth. At the upper range of those estimates, the $456 billion cost of the war could have fed and educated the world's poor for five and a half years."

You know, it's lunch time... but I'm not hungry. I'm a little sick to my stomach.
