Millions, Billions, are numbers bandied about all over the place these days. I can never quite get my head around these vast figures and what they actually mean in real terms.
Listening to Radio 4 this morning put it in perspective. In order to show the vast difference between these two amounts an illustration was given with time: 1 million seconds is equal to approximately 11 days and 1 billion seconds to 31 years.
So just maybe now when I hear about billions outstanding in the economy I will feel, well not better, more aware let’s say, more able to contemplate the enormity of it all. How about you?
