The purpose of this video is to give an idea of the debt of the United States. Not irrelevant at all, must watch the entire video before talking...

Every few WORDS he feels the NEED to accentuate a WORD, so it seems MORE impressive.

I would take it in quarters if I had a chance. With that kind of money, I would buy some storage space to store it in.

Now who wonders where this money comes from, debts need to be paid right? So actually someone or something owned that kind of money. The other possibility is that they produce only more money, hence there is no debt!

#2 I hope more people vote you up. The video was boring... until the punchline at 4:55. Holy crap ... 12 trillion? Is that true? I wonder how much of that is from the war in Iraq?

Completely worthless video. WTF is it even about? Who would ever have that money in bills? It would just be a figure on a computer somewhere. Why would you even compare it with something else? We learn nothing from this video at all.

I love how he says "less than half a trillion stars in our entire milky way galaxy", like it's a big part of the universe. Dude, there are more than millions of galaxies...

Retarded video with creepy music in the background, looks like one of those conspiracy theory people had nothing better to do.

#20 Thanks for sharing that with us....I had forgotten that the US's Debt to National Gross Domestic Product Ratio was far better off than the UK , Portugal , Germany , Italy , Greece , and Japan , as your link shows.
Here is another one for you:

#9 The point:

If it only was that. There is still interest to pay!

So governments all over the world like the US actually have to loan money from banks to pay their interests to the same banks.

I know about Germany: from 1980 - 2000 the country took up about 752 Billion Euros, but in the same period they paid 903 Billion Euros in interest.

I don't know much about economics, but that sounds like a bad deal for me. Who got the difference? And who pays for it now? :S

Maybe something is basically wrong with our system!

There are a few rich people close to half a trillion. At least for as far as we know, I heat those oil sheiks have gold like the paper stacks of money in this clip (referring to the man is dot one).

The numerical value is irrelevant, it's the purchasing power that's important. One day, soon, one trillion is going to be the new billion.
