Seems to me that a single second isn't really worth that much by itself. Rather than just give a single second to each person on earth why don't they set up a second trading scheme - rather like the carbon trading scheme - so that we can sell our seconds to the highest bidder?

I'm sure that would increase the value of our seconds as there's bound to be some rich git who would want to buy them.

A second trading market would also give a great boost to the economy.

OK, but I don't think people own time, Mike. If we did, the government would have taxed the stuff by now

Well we were created in God's image and a lot of the Imperial measurements were taken from convenient body parts. (-:
