    pretty crazy. I wouldn`t even need 1 trillion. A cool million is just fine. I HATE that the government tosses the words million and trillion around like its a dollar. They need to come down to our level, where one hundred dollars is what some people literally kill to have. They kill people in Iraq AND SPEND BILLIONS of dollars at the same time.

    that`s pretty cool, it`s shame thou that 80 to 90% of the money really doesn`t exist. It`s all just digital shadows, ghosts, and IOU`s.

    For those that are going to miss my point, its money borrowed and lent so many times that its value is meaningless

    "pretty crazy. I wouldn`t even need 1 trillion. A cool million is just fine."

    Think again. Once hyperinflation (or stagflation) kicks in from all of the new found "money" (money the Feds are just gonna "print") you will need far more than a cool million to live like a millionaire. Billion is the new million.

    even with a relative model of how much money that is, it`s beyond my comprehension. my bank account has RARELY exceeded 10k in my life, and it`s not close to that now. A trillion dollars is a make believe number.

    Well, in 100$ bills of course it looks huge.

    But it`s because of how insignificant $100 is in comparison to a trillion.

    1x10^2 compared to 1x10^12 is a significant difference.

    A million dollars is a humongous sum...and people often seem to forget that factoid. Someone making 50K a year will need 20 years to make a million...if you evade taxes and expenditures.

    It`s incredible that the U.S. is managing to get so far in debt... Consider that Michael Jackson at one point had over a billion and was on the verge of bankruptcy amazes me.

    Also, a lot of you guys need to calm down. "Omg, trillion dollars of *my* money". Not the case.

    Additionally, the trillion dollars is going to fund large organizations that, if they go bust, will lead to a chain of events losing tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of jobs.

    You just don`t comprehend the scale of any of those things or your country.

    You produce 1.76 Billon pounds of garbage a day. In a year that`s over 640 billion pounds. That`s 64 pounds of garbage (say roughly 2 or 3 garbage bags) for every frigging note in that pile.

    That`s because your country is LARGE. All you are individually contributing to that pile is 27 notes over the course of a year, to prevent your entire economy (and every country linked to yours) from capsizing.

    (0.0000000027%)

    I`m hoping all you twenty/thirty year olds work your asses off the rest of your lives, and save most of it. Because none of you will ever see a dime of social security money for your retirement.

    You`ll be paying off this deficit till you die, Then your kids will pay on it some more.

    Thanks Baal, I`ve always wondered what a `million` was. :-P :-)

    And just think, George Bush took 3 times that amount of money out of Social Security and Medacare just to give us all a $300 stimulous check in 2001. And we REELECTED him.

    @Kyhole

    A trillion used to be 1 million cubed and a billion was 1 million squared. It might still be that for European countries but currency-wise, a trillion is a million times a million.

    if anyone got an actual picture of $1 trillon in a room, then i`m pretty sure they either work for the government or they just spent a decade successfully robbing banks and casinos and never spent any of the cash.

    in the old days, the Reserve minted bills up to $100,000 for use in large government transactions. nowadays, they can do it all electronically and save the hassle.

    "It`s just paper."

    It isn`t. The paper is just paper. The ink is just ink. Neither matters, a fact which you could quickly verify by printing a few thousand dollar bills of your own and trying to spend them.

    In modern times, money is just a promise.

    Seriously - it`s all a bunch of IOUs that people agree to accept. That`s why the current economic problem could occur - enough people suddenly decided that the largely fake basis for the IOUs wasn`t worth as much as before. Our entire economies are based on collective pretence.

    In the UK, notes (bills to you) are even explicitly labelled as a promise, on the note. "I promise to pay the bearer on demand the sum of <insert value> pounds". All the rest of the note is merely a collection of ways to make it harder to fake.

    So it isn`t paper. Paper is just a convenient thing to write the IOUs on.

    SilverThread:

    Actually the picture IS right... remember that $1 billion is equal to *ten* pallets, not one

    There is 100 pallets (50 double stacked)in each row
    10 pallets = $1 billion; so
    100 pallets = $10 billion
    so each row has $10 billion

    1 trillion (12 zeros) / 10 billion (10 zeros) = 100

    so you need 100 rows of $10 billion to make $1 trillion. And the picture shows that (I assume, I haven`t counted the rows!)

    For the person who asked how much gold this could buy (I`m using American Measurement, not Metric. Sorry.):

    Gold: Around 1000 USD an ounce at its peak. YOu could buy 1 billion ounces of gold. Divide that by 16 and you get 62,500,000 lbs. of gold. Divide that by 2000 and you get 31,250 TONS OF GOLD. That much gold doesn`t even exist on Earth, unless we dug up the molten metal at the Earth`s core or something.

    That second picture is TOTALLY WRONG!!!! I know personally exactly what a million in 100`s looks like and its WAY more than that. That little pile at the guy`s feet looks more like a `brick`, which is 1,000 one hundred dollar bills. You need 10 of those bricks to make a million dollars. To give you a size reference, you could put $1,000,000 in hundreds in a drawer of a side-board or china cabinet. THAT`s how much room it takes. These people should ask someone that actually deals with these amounts. DUH.
