What Can You Buy With A Trillion Dollars?

Most people have a hard time envisioning a number as big as a billion, much less a trillion. How much money is a trillion dollars? Some examples may help to put that amount in perspective.

The G-20 summit committed to $1.2 trillion in new funds, with the aim of boosting the world economy, cleaning up banks, and increasing trade, among many other things. The stimulus plan is worth more than $800 billion and the second half of the bank bailout package is at $350 billion, which make up the $1.2 trillion, but the very idea of a trillion dollars exceeds what most of our minds, let alone a standard calculator, have the capacity to understand. What does a trillion dollars look like and what else could a trillion dollars buy?
