    1. It would take 1 million days. Think about it. $1 per day per person... it would take 1 million days for everyone to get their million bucks. That's approximately 2,739 years.

    2. It wouldn't have much effect. I'm assuming that over the course of 2,739 years inflation will do quite a number on the value of a dollar. If the dollar still exists, $1 million won't be that big of a sum.

    3. If every citizen were a millionaire, prices would skyrocket. But as I've pointed out, your program wouldn't make everyone a millionaire for almost 3 millenia.

    4. If I got $1,000,000, I would not quit my job. A million dollars isn't enough to live out the rest of one's life in comfort.

    By the way, your pool would reach well over $10,000,000 in the first day. There are 310 million Americans, so you would collect $310,000,000 per day (assuming no transaction costs). It would still take thousands of years for them to all be millionaires, though.

    If the total population (307 million) gave $365 ($1 per day), only 112,055 people would receive $1,000,000 in the first year. It would take almost 2740 years to make everyone in the US a millionaire in this manner. Clearly we don't live that long. This also does not account for a growing population. This program won't work.
