yesterday Trend & Value got a visit from someone searching for:

how heavy is 700 billion in gold

well, dear googler, if you take the round number of $900 an ounce (troy) then 700 billion equals 777,777,777.7777... troy ounces of gold.


convert that into a weight a gringo can understand and you get 53.333 million pounds. or about 330,000 kegs of beer. about three beers for each college student in America. pretty cheap bailout if you ask me.
