How Much Is A Trillion Dollars?

$1,000,000
This little pile of cash can easily fit into any backpack and weighs just about 22 lbs. Just in case you didn’t believe that those criminals in the movies couldn’t fit a million bucks in those briefcases, it’s very possible! You’re not likely to ever see this amount of cash in one place unless you work in a bank or are a high-level drug dealer:

$100,000,000
Here we have $100 million – neatly fits on any standard pallet, weighing in at a little over one ton. You could stash this away in your bedroom and never work another day in your life. No one will ever see this kind of money in one place except Britney Spears and other celebrities:

$1,000,000,000
Now we’re talking big bucks… $1 billion – ten pallets worth of cold, hard cash. This is more than some countries’ GDP (Gross Domestic Product):

$1,000,000,000,000
Finally, here we are – one trillion dollars. That’s twelve zeros, go ahead and count ‘em! One MILLION million, or one thousand billion… This is just an obscene amount of money – the dollar value is more than all that are currently in circulation:

Imagine this pile of cash burning… would be almost a spectacular as the recent stimulus package – and as effective too. Source: http://deliveriesgalore.com

  • Perfct.

  • wow, this visual demonstration is quite powerful and unsettling. it really calls for all of us to be responsible for every single dollar we earn and spend. Understanding the value and energy behind the “almighty dollar” is something that has been gravely overlooked and such neglect has brought us to this mess. Thank you for this education jay kubassek!
