In October 2013, the U.S.A. went through

a crisis when the debt ceiling, voted period-

ically by the Congress, reached its limit of

$16.394 trillion. Here is this debt pictured in

stacks of $100 bills.

Of course, these sky-scrapers of

paper money will never exist, since

the debt is made up of money that

does not exist, and inflates because

of compound interest. Even if all

the bank notes in circulation were

collected, there is no way the debt

could be paid back.
