This thread depresses me, I need to go out and buy a lotto ticket so I can belong to the one percent.
Therefore, the total amount of money in the world depends on how it is classified. When money is considered as the physical coins, bank notes, and the ones deposited in both checking and savings accounts; the total amount globally is approximately $36.8 trillion. However, when this physical money includes the ones held in the accessible accounts, the amount rises to roughly $90.4 trillion. This amount also increases when bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies are included. The total amount of money under such classification is as high as one quadrillion US dollars.
I won't spend any of it, just stick it into the bank or something
