costly inauguration for poor country

The presidential inauguration held earlier today reportedly cost about 175 million dollars.  Now, I know this is like chump change to the government, but c’mon; it’s not like we have money growing on trees (unless by trees I mean China).

But is this the answer for a nation with a suffering economy?  Obama talks about “wise spending”, but maybe we should start talking about “wise saving”, instead.
