PetroChina vs. Russia's Economy

Posted By: Dr. Frugal in Economics on 11/05/2007 at 08:04:30

PetroChina's value is now more than the economic value of Russia. Wow. After breaking $1T, they are now by far the most valuable company ever--larger than GE and Exxon combined. I can't even fathom a trillion dollars: 1,000,000,000,000.00. Ok, I added the cent zeros just for effect but you get the idea. At this point in my life I can fathom only about a million dollars. Billions seems like a very abstract concept and trillions...yikes. Picasso-like.
