People rarely quote accurate figures when comparing chalk and cheese items like scientific research, solutions to world poverty, numbers of hospital beds, bankers' bonuses, etc.  That's beside the point thought isn't it?  How do you quantify the benefit of having a fundamentally better understanding about the way literally, like, everything, is made up? 

Very true. I heard someone on the Radio (probably the NOW show) say it cost a lot less than Crossrail. I suspect they weren't joking.

As other people have said, sometimes it's hard to know the relevence of a discovery until afterwards, but if you consider what a knowledge of quantum physics has given to the developed world, it's hard to see how this isn't a huge discovery that may have enormous potential for future development.

BTW, I don't think any scientist has refered to it as the God particle, that was a journalist.
