5. Financial Crisis Cost Tops $22 Trillion, GAO Says

 

'The 2008 financial crisis cost the U.S. economy more than $22 trillion, a study by the Government Accountability Office published Thursday said. The financial reform law that aims to prevent another crisis, by contrast, will cost a fraction of that.'

So I guess we can expect ten times that number over the years...great just what the world did NOT need.
