ninemiletree comments on All of the world's physical currency, gold, silver, and bitcoin is worth $12.7 trillion. The size of the national debt is nearly $20 trillion.: "EDIT: Also, one thing to keep in mind - as a citizen of the US, YOU, as a taxpayer, are technically a shareholder in the value of our national assets. Yes, you pay taxes, and yes, our government is actually incredibly poor in returning assets to the people, but that stockpile of gold they mention? YOU own a share of that - we all do. A country is just the sum of its citizens... so out of roughly 200m taxpayers, you own 1/200,000,000 of that 130 trillion dollar wealth.
