US Debt Ceiling Visualized in $100 Bills
United States owes a lot of money. As of 2012, US debt is larger than the size of the economy. The debt ceiling is currently set at $16.394 Trillion and approaching rapidly.
122.1 Trillion Dollars
$122,100,000,000,000. – US unfunded liabilities by Dec 31, 2012.
Abovet you can see the pillar of cold hard $100 bills that dwarfs the
WTC & Empire State Building – both at one point world’s tallest buildings.
If you look carefully you can see the Statue of Liberty.
The 122.1 Trillion dollar super-skyscraper wall 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.
If you live in USA this is also your personal credit card bill; you are responsible along with
everyone else to pay this back. The citizens of USA created the U.S. Government to serve
them, this is what the U.S. Government has done while serving The People.
The unfunded liability is calculated on current tax and funding inputs, and future demographic
shifts in US Population.
Note: On the above 122.1T image the size of the bases of the money stacks are $10 billion, and 400 stories @ $4 trillion
“It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.” – Thomas Jefferson
Everyone needs to see this.
“This is when you need to remember that when a nation’s economy collapses, the wealth of the nation doesn’t disappear, it only changes hands.”
Gold – Visualized in Bullion Bars
There’s surprisingly little Gold in the world & this infographic shows all the Gold ever mined.
In this Gold infographic everything is calculated with Gold price at $2000/oz.
When Gold reaches $3110/oz, 1 oz of Gold & a $100 bill will have equal value in weight and it won’t matter if you have 1oz of $100 bills or 1oz of Gold.
Gold is usually measured in Troy Ounces. A Troy Ounce is about 1.09 regular Ounces.
If all the gold ever mined was melted into a solid cube,
the cube with sides of 20.5m would fit in an Olympic Swimming Pool.
The small gold sphere, in front of the cash couch, weights 1 metric ton exactly, with a value
over $50 Million dollars.
