Anglo’s Billions

For many Irish people, the news reports of countless billions going into Anglo Irish Bank have desensitized people to the true meaning of all those big numbers. So how can we put them into context? I created a diagram to illustrate the size of it all. Its only marginally smaller than a  single year’s tax take, and well in excess of all those EU structural funds that have built all those roads, schools and hospitals. We could even host the olympics three times over. More comparisons available here
