a trillion dollars


If you are interested in discussing the national debt, bailout plan, money, or even just large numbers with your older children, I found a really neat, very short (one minute) video on You Tube that talks about “a trillion dollars” in terms we can easily understand. A trillion dollars is only ONE TENTH of the bailout plan.

The video is non-partisan and appropriate for all age groups.  It brings the debt money into “real” terms we can all understand.
