National Debt as Stacks of Cash

“Why weren’t you in the pros making stacks of cash and getting your toes licked by beautiful women?” – SFC Cunningham, Signs

Saw this great representation of the national debt today.

For reference, the national debt statistics from this morning:

  • National Debt: $14,349,064,955,421
  • US Population: 311,027,724
  • National Debt per Capita (your share): $46,134

The unfunded liabilities are worse. I’ve seen numbers all over the place, but the linked chart puts it at $114.5 trillion.

  • Unfunded Liabilities: $114,500,000,000,000
  • US Population: 311,027,724
  • Unfunded Liabilities per Capita (your share): $368,134

This is the amount of money, promised by your government, on your behalf, to pay someone else. Do you have $368,134? Not to fear, if you don’t have it, I’m sure they’ll just settle for what you have … everything you have.
