This is a question that will come up at least a few times and it probably happens many times in your life. But should we ever stop to think about it? The answer is a resounding no.
One million is enough to buy a million-dollar car (this of course is a little over-exaggerated). One million is enough to buy a million-dollar house (and I’m not sure it’s enough to buy a million-dollar house). One million is enough to buy a million-dollar video game (and even that is a little over-exaggerated).
I’m not sure how to compare the number of dollars one can earn to the number of million dollars that you can buy. Obviously there is some correlation between the two, but the former is an absolute number and the latter is not. One million is equal to one million dollars and one million is equal to one trillion dollars. If you wanted to be very specific in your computation, one million is equal to one trillion dollars.
If you want to make a movie based on the amount of money one can earn, you will probably need to set the budget and make a couple hundred thousand dollars. That will be around $100,000.
One million is also equivalent to the number of units in the United States. If you want to make a movie about the amount of money one can make one million dollars is equivalent to one trillion.
One trillion dollars is the amount of money that the United States of America currently has in their bank accounts. So if you wanted to make a movie about that amount of money, you would need to set the budget and make a couple hundred thousand dollars. That will be around 100,000.
In other words, an income of one million dollars would be equivalent to $100,000. That would be equivalent to $1,000,000.00. A million dollars would be $1,000,000.00.
I know many of you are like me and can’t believe I said “a million dollars is 1,000,000.” Because I know many of you will say “we’re not making a movie about a million dollars… it’s just money”. Well, that’s true, but one million dollars is a lot of money. It’s a lot of money for a movie.
The million dollar question. Money can make or break you. One million dollars is a lot of money to a lot of people. But for others it’s not big enough to make a difference. They’ll have to get the 1,000,000.00 from somewhere, and that’s not going to be easy.
One million dollars may not seem like a lot, but 1 million is a lot. And when it is considered by people, it may seem to be a lot. But when you consider the amount of money that goes into movies, TV shows, comic books, video games, etc., it can feel like a lot of money. A million dollars for a movie, a million dollars for a TV show, a million dollars for a comic book, etc., can feel like a lot of money.
