# What is a trillion dollars?

Written by Subject: Economy - Economics USA
This is a series of pictures which is gives a visual representation on what a Trillion dollars looks like.  It is a series of slides that goes from 100 "dollars" all the way up to ONE TRILLION dollars.  A TRILLION is 1 followed by 12 zeros 1,000,000,000,000.

To get an idea on how large a Trillion really is, take a guess now as to how many YEARS a trillion seconds is the answer will be provided at the end of the slide show.  From all of us to all of you...ENJOY!!

While you are enjoying the pictures consider that your governmental overlords have indebted your children and your children's, children to the tune of 50 TRILLION dollars.  Be sure to share this with as many people as you possibly can!

1. How much is a TRILLION?

2. What does a TRILLION DOLLARS look like?
3.  Here's a Hundred "dollars".

4. TEN THOUSAND "dollars"

5. ONE MILLION "dollars"

6.  ONE HUNDRED MILLION "dollars".

7.  ONE BILLION "dollars".

9. ONE TRILLION "dollars"!

10.  For a Geener America

11.  The new TRILLION "dollar" BILL

And now this is the official federal debt of 10 TRILLION dollars.  Does this graphic put it into perspective?  See the tiny speck in the lower left hand corner that is a human being.

Now multiply times 10 that would be 100 TRILLION dollars!  All these pallets of "money" called "dollars" can be replaced with  one new note.  Think about all the expense that went into printing all this money.  Plus there is all the time needed to print it.  The government spends money faster then the printing presses can print.   Don't laugh because that is what was done in Zimbabwe when they experienced their hyperinflation.   What is remarkable is when you see it at this level.  It all comes into focus.  What the government is doing is CRIMINAL!  so here is a 100 trillion dollar bill from Zimbabwe

and now think about the question I asked earlier on how long is ONE TRILLION seconds.  Before I answer the question take a think about a guess now.  Don't cheat and use a calculator.  I figured this out by hand when I was very, very, very bored.
