What Does $1 Trillion Look Like?

A trillion here, a trillion there — what’s money? That’s the impression you may get when you hear politicians and bureaucrats talk. Now for a little perspective  from PageTutor [1]:


Each pallet is $100 million, and they are double-stacked. The red-and-blue speck on the left is a man. Every taxpayer is an even tinier speck in the Big Government scheme of things.
