What's a trillion? 

I have been talking on this blog for a couple years now of trillions. People don't get their heads around trillions. I've seen a powerpoint going around that does this, but it typically has some political slant to it. I have edited out the politics to just give you a neutral view of a trillion dollars that can be shared with friends. To be fair, I've included a couple links from which this material in part derives, though some of the data was added by me. I have been using this edited version for presentation slides for the last three months with some success. I hope you find them useful too.
