1 Billion Dollars

On Monday, the Zimbabwe government introduced the 100 billion Zimbabwe dollar note (for the uninitiated, a billion is nine zeros).


This is a approaching the level of inflation that Germany experienced after World War I.

I hope that I never see this in my country. I am half tempted to exchange some US money into Zimbabwe money... just to have one of these outlandishly large bills.
