Crash Course: Chapter 11 - How Much is a Trillion? by Chris Martenson

Chapter 11 (How Much Is A Trillion?): Recently, we have gotten used to hearing the word "trillion." From trillions of dollars of government debt to trillion dollar bailout packages, we are spending enormous sums of money. However, most of us dont realize how much a trillion actually is. Dr. Martenson explains how much a trillion is using a few examples, such as a 67.9 mile high stack of $1,000 bills. As he concludes: "Make no mistake, a trillion is a very, very big number and we should not be lulled into complacency simply because it is too big to really get our minds around. That should drive us to action instead." http://www.chrismartenson.com
