A Trillion - how big's that?

G20 gives 1 Trillion dollars to fight the economic crisis.

Will it work? Nobody knows.

How much money is that?

Well, a million seconds is 12 days
a billion seconds is 31 years
a trillion seconds is 31,688 years

So its fair to say it's a lot of money.

What does it look like?



1 Million

100 million

1 billion


1 Trillion

note they are double stacked pallets and the person is standing by the left hand bottom corner.

Jeepers it does make Ngai Tahu's $600 million look pretty small and fragile.
