Click on the image to view larger scale.  There’s no agenda here.  I was just doing some research for something entirely unrelated to this blog and found some of the numbers interesting when placed side-by-side.  So I dug up a few others to compare.

The juxtaposition often makes you think about things like priorities and relative need.  I was going to include a few others like the cumulative cost of the Iraq-Afghanistan War, but the figures were not consistent (ranges from 5.1 to 6.8 trillion dollars).  So those kinds of items were omitted.  In any case, enjoy.
