$3 million per minute hour.

"$3 million per minute hour."

Royal Dutch Shell “reignited anger over excessive profits today” after revealing it made $27.6 billion in 2007 – “a new record for a UK company.” AmericaBlog notes that this number is the equivalent of $3 million per minute hour.

UPDATE: Commenters have noted that the rate is $3 million per hour, not minute. The correct per minute rate is roughly $51-52K per minute. We regret the initial error.
