US debt in pictures

I’m sure you’ve heard something about the levels of debt that the USA’s in at the moment. I’m sure you’ve heard some pretty big numbers being mentioned – one’s that are probably a little difficult to comprehend. Well, the old saying that pictures tell a thousand words may help to put it into perspective and in this case it’s pictures of stacks of dollah.

A good old $100 bill

$10 000

$1 million – doesn’t look like that much, does it?

$100 million

$1 billion

$1 trillion – the US borrowed 1.7 times this in 2010 to run itself

$15 trillion – the amount of debt the government could be in by the end of the year

$114.5 trillion – the amount of money the US doesn’t have to fund the Medicare, Medicare Prescription Drug Program,
Social Security, Military and civil servant pensions.

I’m not really clued up on these issues so haven’t really commented but fcuk, that’s a lot of money! With the amount of shit going on across the globe at the moment I think we could be in for some tough times ahead.

From here.
