What Will $1 Trillion Buy?

By JLP | July 21, 2010

I received a cool email this morning about a Kiplinger slide show illustrating how much $1 trillion will buy.

First off, let’s get an idea of how much a trillion dollars is as a number:

$1,000,000,000,000

In other words, IT’S A LOT OF MONEY!

Back to the email…

It contained a list of what $1 trillion would buy:

• LEBRON JAMES’ SALARY FOR THE NEXT 50,000 YEARS

• 1.33 TRILLION CHOCOLATE BARS

• 1,333 CELEBRITY DIVORCE SETTLEMENTS

• 40,816,326 NEW CARS

• 5.6 MILLION HOMES

• 140 BILLION HOURS OF WORK

To see more and to learn about what criteria they used in arriving at their numbers, visit their slideshow. It’s pretty interesting (and pretty scary if you’re keeping up with our nation’s deficit issues).
