Just because it relatively looks about the same as the 2012 one, doesn't mean that it's a small amount of money it's about. Even if it's just 0.05 trillions, you will miss it really hard.

not to mention the relative value of a dollar in 1913 (when this chart starts) was nowhere near the value of a dollar in say 1993 or whatever

It says "Inflation ajusted" in the post, your issue has been taken care of

Did you miss where it says "Inflation adjusted"?

To be completely honest, I somehow doubt that is anywhere close to being accurately or validly "inflation adjusted".

In fact I looked it up and it's complete ******** . The U.S. budget in 1920 was $291,000,000, and a 1920 dollar is worth $12.15 today, do the math and that comes out to $3,535,650,000 which is 3.5 trillion dollars, just under the 2010ish budgets.

how do you get 3.5 billion to become 3.5 trillion? 1 billion = 1*10^9
