You may have heard millions and billions quite often. Have you thought about trillions? Becoming a trillionaire is no easy job. Having this much money is equivalent to unbelievable amount of wealth. A trillion is such a huge number followed by twelve zeros. That is one thousand times a billion.

As of today, there are no trillionaires who live on earth. Such extreme wealth we dont see in our lifetime. Believe it or not it is an unbelievable wealth. In the past Kings had that much wealth. Most of these wealth came from earth’s resources rich in minerals, the riches in earth is only declining as years pass by.

Today’s billionaires own only a fraction of wealth when compared to trillion and many are already old. It would take another century to produce a trillionaire and another thousand years to produce a quadrillionaire (1000 times a trillionaire)
