I previously wrote an article about how much a pound of 50s would be worth, and for some reason I think it’s fun to put money into terms of weight.
So, when I saw the visualization of what a stack of 1.14 trillion dollars would look like my first though of course was, “How much would that weigh?”
1 bill = ~1 gram (assume $100 bill like the infographic)
1.14 trillion dollars in debt divided by $100 =11.4 billion $100 bills
11.4 billion $100 bills at one gram each = 11.4 billion grams or 11,400 metric tons
To put that into perspective my favorite math site in the world, Wolfram Alpha, gave me some numbers:
This is pretty interesting, because according to the original infographic our pile of money would be ~1.5x the height of the Empire State Building!
