13 Things Smaller Than JPMorgan's $13B Settlement

13 Things Smaller Than the JPMorgan Settlement:

Yesterday I wrote about JPMorgan’s $13B settlement with the authorities over their suspect business practices. Today, let’s take a look at just how big that settlement is. Here are 13 things smaller than that settlement.

    1.  The GDP of the country Chad, which is $11B
    2. The combined value of the professional sports teams in New York. The Yankees, Mets, Giants, Jets, Knicks, Nets, Rangers, and Islanders have a combined value of $8.5B.
    3. The number of people in the world, which sits at approximately 7B.
    4. The number of Google searches per day. With about 5B Google searches per day, it would take two and half days to hit 13B.
    5. The number of pint glasses you could fill with the oil from the BP Deepwater Horizon spill. While gross, that would only be 2.8B pint glasses.
    6. The amount of Coca-Cola consumed in the world every day is about 1.8B servings. 13B is about a week’s worth of the soda.
    7. The square footage of Wal-Mart stores around the world is a little less than 1B. Wal-Mart would have to triple in size to get to 13B.
    8. Interstate 10 stretches 155,887,142 inches from Jacksonville, Fla to Santa Monica, Calif.
    9. There are about 89,300,000 cows in the United States.
    10. McDonald’s serves about 69M customers per day.
    11. Michael Jordan scored 32,292 points in his NBA career.
    12. To hit 13B miles, you would have to go to the moon and back 27,208 times.
    13. 2.4B people lived on less than $2 a day in 2010, meaning JPMorgan could sustain over a third of the population of three days with the value of this settlement alone.
    14. That’s a lot of money…
