Godzilla: the world’s most expensive mistake? (Infographic)
There are many theories about how Godzilla was created, but the version of events most widely accepted by Godzilla fans is this: a type of dinosaur called “Gojirasaurus” somehow survived the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event and lived in small breeding populations in the South Pacific. All but one of these dinosaurs were destroyed in World War II. The last Gojirasaurus clung to life on the remote island of Lagos until post-war nuclear tests caused him to be subjected to enormous doses of radiation, causing him to rapidly and dramatically mutate and grow into what we now know as Godzilla.
Since he first devastated Tokyo in 1954, Godzilla has destroyed countless famous landmarks during his rampages across the last 60 years. Here at Freedom Finance, we decided we wanted to get an idea of how much this fictional giant would have cost the global economy by now.
So, how much has mankind’s biggest mistake cost us since he first devastated Tokyo in 1954?
