With numbers like One Trillion being tossed around in the news lately, it’s always good to step back and try to visualize what a number like that really looks like.
To help you get a grasp on it, PageTutor has created a rendering that shows what one trillion dollars looks like as stacks of $100 bills.
The result is below, but keep in mind that when you’re looking at this and trying to give it some meaning, each pallet you see here is holding $100 million dollars, and the pallets themselves are then double stacked.
Oh, and that tiny little red dot at the corner of the pile?
