THIS IS WHAT $68 MILLION LOOKS LIKE

     You have probably seen images of Oregon's new HD Complex by now.  That is what $68 million can be turned into.  Is there another way to visualize just how much money went into this building?  How much would it take the average Joe to make that kind of money?  Let's say Joe has a good year and made $50,000 for the year after taxes.  Let us say Joe has a wife, Jenny, and she also made $50,000 after taxes.  This gives them a nice round $100,000 for the year.  Is this a lot of money?  What could you spend $100,000 on?  It would take Joe and Jenny 680 years to save enough money to purchase the HD complex if inflation and interest earnings were frozen and income remained constant.  Here is another way to visualize it:
