So this is what does 1 trillion (1,000,000,000,000) dollars looks like. Here are pictures and video to show just how much money this is, it’s mind blowing! We start of with a mere $10,000 and work our way up to $1,000,000,000,000
A packet of one hundred $100 bills is less than 1/2″ thick and contains $10,000. Fits in your pocket easily and is more than enough for week or two of shamefully decadent fun.
Believe it or not, this next little pile is $1 million dollars (100 packets of $10,000). You could stuff that into a grocery bag and walk around with it.
While a measly $1 million looked a little unimpressive, $100 million is a little more respectable. It fits neatly on a standard pallet…
And $1 billion dollars… now we’re really getting somewhere…
Next we’ll look at one trillion dollars. You will have heard this number being tossed but what does a trillion dollars look like? Well, it’s a million million. It’s a thousand billion. It’s a one followed by 12 zeros. You ready for this? It’s pretty surprising.
Notice those pallets are double stacked! So the next time you hear someone toss around the phrase “trillion dollars”… that’s what they’re talking about.
