It expanded the Term Asset-Backed Lending Facility, or TALF, by $800 billion to $1 trillion and announced a $1 trillion Public-Private Investment Fund to buy troubled assets from banks.

How much is trillion dollars and why is this a big deal?

A trillion is one thousand billion - 1,000,000,000,000.00

A billion is one thousand million - 1,000,000,000.00

Just for giggles, lets say someone gave you a billion $1,000,000,000.00 dollars, and the only condition for you to start spending the money is to simply count out up to one billion first, that would seem like a easy task now wouldn't it? - But not really, you see, if you were to count out one billion $1,000,000,000.00, nonstop without sleeping, eating, moving, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, it would take you over 39 years to just verbally count out a billion.

Now if you were to just verbally count out one trillion $1,000,000,000,000.00 nonstop without sleeping, or eating and moving, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, it would take over 55,000 years to just verbally count out one trillion.

Since trillion and billion are difficult numbers and volumes to imagine and comprehend, so I thought putting these huge figures into a real world perspective, an understandable volume of something important to all of us, may help us to realize what are we doing and how big a damage we are inflicting upon our one and only HOME, Planet Earth:

Two billion 2,062,281,600 Plastic Bags Ago; dumped in trash, choking our oceans and land, was yesterday, just 24 hours ago, United States only!

Two billion 2,880,000,000 Plastic Water Bottles Ago; dumped in trash, choking our oceans and land, was yesterday, just 24 hours ago, United States only!

A billion 1,314,000,000 Minutes Ago Persian Emperor Kourosh The Great, Wrote The First Charter Of Human Rights 2500 Years Ago.

A billion 1,000,000,000 Hours Ago - Our Ancestors Were Living In The Stone Age.
