WoW that is huge Smiley)

I really don't understand what they are trying to say with this Visualization. What the hell the physical volume of the value of the dept in 100 dollar bills means . I really don't get it.
A better visualization in my opinion would be in weighted pennyes converted to elephants or even better ants , and then stacked and the volume of the stacked ants would be the most insightful visualization ever.

eh i was just having fun.

these visualization dont really help people see the true picture.


yeah bill gates debt pile would probably be bigger than my house, but is bill gates in trouble? hardly.

and for the most part.. Unfunded liabilities crap is just crap designed to get big numbers and is mostly meaningless.


you can take your powerbill and look at it over 200 years too and get a huge number.

I have unfunded liabilities in the form of student loans, we can pretend that i will never pay them off over 75 years and check them out after 75 years and it will be a huge number as well. It doesnt exactly show the actually health of my personal economy.

Like wise you cant pretend their will be zero changes to SS and then project it over 75 years.. that is nothing more than designed to totally mislead people

There is a reason why our debt has NOT been downgraded. People with money, who trade, know the unfunded liability crap is just political crap from those with an agenda trying to scare the sheep with really big numbers.

The idea is to make people think, geez, that's more then all my savings TOGETHER!
And then, they watch TV.
