What does a trillion dollars looks like? And what would it buy?

$10,000:

$1 million:

$1 billion:


$1 trillion!


That's $1,000,000,000,000!

$1 trillion could pay for all the goods and services produced in Australia in one year.

$1 trillion is enough to run the American federal government for 103 days.

$1 trllion could fund every NATO country's military (including the USA) for one year.

$1 trllion could pay the mortgage of every American home owner for 14 months.

$1 trllion could purchase all the homes htat have foreclosed in 2007 and 2008.

$1 trillion could pay for the Marshall plan ten times over.

But can it save the world financial system?
