Daily Finance: America's Biggest Gifts

Happy Independence Day! While people play American patriotic music, fire up the grills and enjoy the fireworks, Daily Finance reminds us how our American government influenced history, rebuilt nations, and changed the way we live today. You may not agree with everything listed on the website, but I am a proud American and feel thankful to be a citizen of this great nation. Look at America's most expensive gifts in history:

  1. Louisiana Purchase
  2. Marshall Plan (WWII)
  3. Manhattan Project (WWII)
  4. The Cold War
  5. Apollo Moon Landing
  6. Interstate Highway System
  7. The Wall Street Bailout

Let's not forget this rendition of "God Bless America" by Celine Dion.
