$1 Trillion dollars


Great Graphic depiction of your grand kids mountain of debt, go check it out.

$1 Trillion dollars: "What is exactly is one TRILLION dollars?

All this talk about 'stimulus packages' and 'bailouts'...

A billion dollars...

A hundred billion dollars...

Eight hundred billion dollars...

One TRILLION dollars...

What does that look like? I mean, these various numbers are tossed around like so many doggie treats, so I thought I'd take Google Sketchup out for a test drive and try to get a sense of what exactly a trillion dollars looks like.

We'll start with a $100 dollar bill. Currently the largest U.S. denomination in general circulation. Most everyone has seen them, slighty fewer have owned them. Guaranteed to make friends wherever they go."
