    Looking back, it actually wasn't that bad of a deal for the Indians. The purchase price of 60 guilders was the equivalent of $1000 in their day. $1000 compounded over 383 years @ 6% interest is $4.9 trillion. The total assessed value of the island of Manhattan is only $169b.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
