Million vs Billion

posted Mar 14, 2017, 3:58 PM by Dustin Thomas
From a conceptual perspective, a millionaire and a billionaire seem about the same to me.  A million and a billion are both really big numbers.  Unfortunately, the government seems to think a million and a billion are about the same when it comes to spending as well.  Here’s an interesting way to put things in perspective so you can tell the two apart better:

A million seconds is about 12 days.

A billion seconds is about 32 years.

See - they are different.
