What's the size of the US debt. Its got too many zeros for me to count ...

I have something for you to give you an idea of the size of the debt

USA's Debt

Imagining the American debt-image is not an easy task...

The picture you know, it is a 100 dollar bill.



This famous and known everywhere 100 dollar bill will help us to represent the debt figuratively.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1 Hundred of these 100 dollar bills create this nice bundle worth $10,000



For $10,000 you can buy a small car or go on a nice vacation.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1 Hundred of these bundles give you $1,000,000 (one million).  Not as spectacular as some of us has probably thought but an enormous sum.



The most of us will never earn this much in our entire life.  The question 'Who wants to be a Millionaire' simply does not apply to the average person.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now it is going to get adventurous.  This is what $100,000,000 (one hundred million) looks like.



As you see $ 100 million still fit on a commercial Palette. In the foreground for comparison is the the $10,000 bundle
and the $1 million stack.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ten pallets then yield $1,000,000,000 (one billion), which no longer fits in your auto garage.



If you have not heard, if you should ever plan to rob a bank to steal a billion dollars, remember to bring a truck!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For $1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion) you would then need 1,000 trucks



Look closely because the pallets are stacked in a double layer to ensure a that they all fit on a football pitch.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Boeing 747-400 uses less space, which looks something like this:



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now lets use altitude, because in relation to the Statue of Liberty this not a house, these are 15.000.000.000.000 $ (fifteen trillion) ...



The Boeing is unfortunately no longer visible...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now we want to tell you how high the debt actually is....

Attention, it is ... 114.500.000.000.000 $ (114.5 trillion!)
and it looks like this:



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A whole new perspective!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
