On March 23, 2017, the U.S. government’s total public debt outstanding added up to more than $19.86 trillion, or if you round up by another 0.014 trillion, we’re really talking about a national debt of 20 trillion dollars.
That’s a big number, which for many people, is really tough to grasp just how big a number it is. However, the visual infographic artists at Demonocracy put themselves to the challenge and used stacks of cash to illustrate just how much space $20 trillion of national debt would occupy if all that cash were to ultimately be stacked up in tall piles next to the Statue of Liberty.
As Tyler Durden notes:
Just remember “the money in the video has already been spent.”
