A visualization of the us dept

  1. 1. $100 - Most counterfeited moneydenomination in the world.Keeps the world moving.
  2. 2. $10,000 - Enough for a greatvacation or to buy a used car.Approximately one year of workfor the average human on earth.
  3. 3. $1,000,000 - Not as big of apile as you thought, huh?Still this is 92 years of work forthe average human on earth.
  4. 4. $100,000,000 - Plenty to goaround for everyone.Fits nicely on an ISO / Militarystandard sized pallet.
  5. 5. $1,000,000,000 - You will needsome help when robbing the bank.Now we are getting serious!
  6. 6. $1,000,000,000,000 When the U.S government speaks about a1.7 trillion deficit - this is the volumes of cashthe U.S. Government borrowed in 2010 to runitself. Keep in mind it is double stacked pallets of$100 million dollars each, full of $100 dollarbills. You are going to need a lot of trucks tofreight this around. If you spent $1 million a day since Jesus wasborn, you would have not spent $1 trillion bynow...but ~$700 billion- same amount thebanks got during bailout.
  7. 7. Comparison of $1,000,000,000,000dollars to a standard sized AmericanFootball field and European Footballfield. Say hello to the Boeing 747-400 trans-continental airliner thats hiding on theright. This was until recently the biggestpassenger plane in the world.
  8. 8. $15,000,000,000,000Unless the U.S. governmentfixes the budget, US nationaldebt (credit card bill) will topple15 trillion by Christmas 2011.Statue of Liberty seems ratherworried as United States nationaldebt passes 20% of the entireworlds combined GDP (GrossDomestic Product). In 2011 the National Debt willexceed 100% of GDP, and ventureinto the 100%+ debt-to-GDP ratiothat the European PIIGS have(bankrupting nations).
  9. 9. $114,500,000,000,000. - US unfunded liabilitiesTo the right you can see the pillar of cold hard $100 bills that dwarfs the WTC &Empire State Building - both at one point worlds tallest buildings.If you look carefully you can see the Statue of Liberty.Now take a closer look
  10. 10. The 114.5 Trillion dollar super- skyscraper is the amount of money the U.S. Government knows it does not have to fully fund the Medicare, Medicare Prescription Drug Program,Social Security, Military and civil servant pensions. It is the money USA knows it will not have to pay all its bills.
  11. 11. If you live in USA this is also your personal credit card bill;you are responsible along with everyone else to pay thisback. The citizens of USA created the U.S. Government toserve them, this is what the U.S. Government has donewhile serving The People.The unfunded liability is calculated on current tax andfunding inputs, and future demographic shifts in USPopulation.Note: On the above 114.5T image the size of the base of themoney pile is half a trillion, not 1T as on 15T image.The height is double. This was done to reflect the base ofEmpire State and WTC more closely.Source: Federal Reserve & www.USdebtclock.org - visit it tosee the debt in real time and get a better grasp of thisamazing number.If you liked this presentation, visit the source: http://www.wtfnoway.com
