The United States has borrowed $20 trillion dollars. It is such a big number, it is hard to imagine how much it really is.
Here are a few clues!
$1 trillion is over $200 billion more than the GDP of Australia ($795,305). It’s more than the combined GDPs of Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland ($993,314). (For a full list of PPP-adjusted GDPs, click here.)
If you had $1,000,000,000,000 in cash, you could buy:
282 billion Big Macs
3.1 million Ferrari 599 GTBs
66.7 billion copies of Oliver Stone’s Wall Street
