How Much is a Trillion Dollars?

First to simplify, a billion is 1,000 Million. A trillion is 1,000 billion.

The math is quite simple.

If you gave away a million dollars a day, every day, starting on the day Jesus Christ was born, without earning even a Penny in interest, assuming you could live this long, you would still be doing it today and you can keep on doing it until August of the year 2739.

This of course, assumes you are a long liver.

 

It would take you one thousand days to give away the first billion. One thousand days is 2.739 years. With a trillion dollars you can do this one thousand times.

2.739 years X 1000 = 2739 years.

 

This is quite a pile of cash. Not my money......I got a loan from Pixabay
