 How Big Is a Trillion?  A Trillion is represented mathematically as: 1,000,000,000,000 If you had One Billion items, you would need to multiply them by One Thousand to get a Trillion. This means that if the government has a program that costs One Billion Dollars, then for the cost of One Trillion Dollars, they could have One Thousand of those programs. The US Dollar Bill is 0.0043 Inches thick. If you stacked One Trillion US Dollar Bills on top of each other, the stack would be 67,866 Miles tall. That would be tall enough to reach One Fourth of the way from the Earth to the Moon!   The US Dollar Bill is 16 Square Inches in area. If you laid One Trillion US Dollar Bills next to each other on a huge table, the area they covered would be 3992 Square Miles. That would cover the following parts of the USA: All of Delaware plus  All of Rhode Island plus  7 Copies of Washington DC!   The US Dollar Bill weighs 0.35 Ounces. If you weighed a stack of One Trillion US Dollar Bills they would weigh 10,937,500 Tons. That would weigh as much as 30 copies of the Empire State Building!   One Trillion Seconds is the same as more than 317 Centuries.   Today there are in the neighborhood of 6,763,557,000 people on the Earth. That is more than 6.7 Billion of us. If One Trillion US Dollars were to be divided among every one of us, we would each get \$147.85. Today there are in the neighborhood of 306,946,905 people in the USA. If One Trillion US Dollars were to be divided among every one of us, we would each get \$3,257.89. I'll take my share in gold, please.     Note: If the One US Dollar bill in the photo above appears to be in less than perfect shape, it is probably a sign of the times. The original idea was to obtain a stack of One Trillion US Dollar bills for the photo above, but all we could find were three college students and they did not have that much. Credit for supplying the One US Dollar bill used in the photo above is hereby awarded to a poor college student, named Macsen, who was the only one among the three college students who even had One US Dollar. And that generation and beyond will inherit the task of paying back Trillions of US Dollars.
