musings { whats $1T look like?

Almost unimaginable. Once upon a time 1000 was an incomprehensible number to us humans.

1 trillion numerically looks like this: 1,000,000,000,000 (1x10^12)

Google fails to give us an image of what $1T looks like.

Our money is almost a make-believe thing. The vast majority of us do not carry our wealth around with us, we just trust it is in a bank somewhere.

Its a make-believe thing with real impact.

I still can't believe we bailed out the Banking Industry with no clauses for prosecution or any kind of oversight. But I often feel like the only sane person in the asylum.
