A Hundred Words about a Trillion

BY EMILY INGLIS
@ VOL 33 ON APR 22, 2016

Emily Inglis - gardener and artist

If you are not an astrophysicist or a global economist a trillion is an abstract number, too big to grasp. How big is it? What does it buy? In my talk I will be comparing and contrasting what a trillion is worth. Looking at monetary value globally. How serious is national debt? How much would it cost to buy Wales? If you had enough money could you buy a unicorn? Or a house in Mayfair? These questions will be probed.
