The size of the new economic recovery plan is approaching one trillion dollars. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m having a hard time getting my head around this number. I often work with seven-figure numbers, and occasionally even eight; but that’s about it. A trillion is 13 digits.
I heard a trillion explain this way today:
One million seconds equals 11 ½ days
One billion seconds equals 32 years
One trillion seconds equals 32,000 years
