Which Stocks Will Benefit Most From The $1.9 Trillion Stimulus?

Congress approved a $1.9 trillion stimulus package. The money will flood into the economy in the next several months. As a result, certain stocks will see a huge benefit. But which stocks will benefit most from the $1.9 trillion stimulus?

Who says politicians don’t do anything? Nonsense—they spend. Politicians are better than any other group of people in the history of civilization at spending money. Let’s be fair.

We’ve become numb to terms like billions and trillions. But it’s worth a brief mention of how massive these numbers actually are. To illustrate, let’s measure these numbers in a way we can more easily understand, and apply them to increments of time.

Let’s start with a billion (also known as government chump-change). A billion seconds is 31.5 years. A billion seconds ago it was still 1989. A billion minutes ago was around the time of Christ. A trillion seconds is 31,688 years. A trillion minutes is 1.9 million years.

Congress just approved spending an amount of dollars, which if measured in mere seconds, would be 60,000 years. That’s a lot of bread.

Of course, massive spending bills aren’t new to this pandemic. The CARES Act, which was passed last year during the thick of the pandemic and lockdowns, was $2.2 trillion. And still, more stimulus was approved after that. This $1.9 trillion thing is just the latest stratospheric quantity of dollars the government is spending over the last year.

But there’s a difference with this one. Previous stimulus mostly compensated for dollars that came out of the economy as a result of the lockdowns. They mitigated damage caused by the economic crash. This $1.9 trillion will hit an economy that is already rapidly recovering and growing.

Of course, certain business owners and individuals need that money and more. They didn’t shut down the economy. But it’s been severely impacted. As the vaccines end the remaining lockdowns and restrictions, a full economic recovery will be unleashed. And much of this $1.9 trillion will just be extra, in terms of the aggregate economy.
