What does one TRILLION dollars look like?

All this talk about "stimulus packages" and "bailouts"...

A billion dollars...

A hundred billion dollars...

Eight hundred billion dollars...

One TRILLION dollars...

What does that look like? I mean, these various numbers are tossed around like so many doggie treats, so I thought I'd take Google Sketchup out for a test drive and try to get a sense of what exactly a trillion dollars looks like.

$1 trillion = $20 billion 1913 dollars (apx 1 billion oz gold)

When is a dollar not a dollar? Next year it buys less.

That is the Federal Reserve monetary policy for almost 100 years.

Free includes debt-free!

Cool specs

but I thought it was going to be a picture of a loaf of bread in 2015.
