Here, courtesy of this site is a visual representation of some of the Debt-Miles amounts being discussed in the main article. All images are shown using freshly minted bills - older bills, being crumpled, take up more space.

$100Edit

100USD

$100.00 US. This is only a tiny fraction of one Debt-Mile.

This is how far the rummy on the corner is in debt.







$10,000Edit

10000USD

This is about one Debt-Mile, ie $10,000 US. It would fit in your pocket.

The US Government automatically has registered at least five times this much debt per taxpaying citizen.







$1,000,000Edit

1M USD

This is One Million Dollars, or 96.9 Debt-Miles. This fits in a gym bag.

All contributors up to this level belong to the Associate Membership of the Debt-Miles rewards program. This includes every American citizen, small banks, and minor corporations.












$1,000,000,000Edit

1B USD

This is One Billion Dollars, the unit used in Government Bailout Packages, which is 9,690 Debt-Miles. It fits on ten wooden pallets, and you need a forklift to move it.

Contributors at this level belong to the Bronze and Silver Membership of the Debt-Miles rewards program. These are most major corporations, large banks, and a few private investors.








$1,000,000,000,000Edit

1 T USD

This is One Trillion Dollars. It is packed on double-stacked pallets, fills a football stadium, and is the equivalent of 96.9 million Debt-Miles. Government Debt is measured in piles this size and bigger.

Contributors at this level are Gold and Plutonium Members of the Debt-Miles rewards program. They are generally world governments and large corporations, although particularly wealthy and debt-ridden individuals may be included as they go bankrupt. One of these piles in one-dollar bills would fill one hundred football stadiums to six feet deep, and is the amount of debt (roughly) being added every week by the American Government. God Bless America!
