Most people can’t begin to comprehend how much a trillion dollars is.
Try asking someone how much $1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion) is and you are likely to get a blank stare.
To put things into perspective, when the government spends one trillion dollars and pays for it with taxes, the government would have to seize the entire wealth of one million millionaires. Since the government would very soon run out of millionaires, government spending has become largely financed through borrowings and printed money.
