$100 Billion Dollar Bill

http://edition.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/af...tes/index.html

Zimbabwe introduces 100 Billion Dollar Bill....

"As high as they are, though, the bills still aren't enough to buy a loaf of bread. They can buy only four oranges."

Damn, that sucks. And you thought our money was getting weak.

Picture of measly $500 Million Dollar Bill.

Re: $100 Billion Dollar Bill

From here: http://www.oanda.com/convert/classic

1 US Dollar = 27,301,616,030 Zimbabwe Dollars

With $1000 US you'd have 27,301,616,030,000 Zimbabwe Dollars.

You're a multi-trillionaire!

Re: $100 Billion Dollar Bill

I just got back from Venezuala and they had a similar situation going on down there...they used to have a $2000 bill that was equal to about one US dollar but then they just went and dropped the 3 0's off the end of it and made it a $2 bill that still equaled one US dollar. It was super confusing!

Re: $100 Billion Dollar Bill

Zimbabwe is so unbelievably fucked up it's not even funny. My girl's dad and brother were over there last summer and the value of their money just dropped continually for the two weeks they were there. There were people who actually would steal currency, and then go out and exchange it with tourists since the foreign dollar was that much better then theirs.

Re: $100 Billion Dollar Bill

I just got back from South Africa, and there is alot in the news about Zim. What a sad state of affairs.

We found a 5,000,000 bill laying on the street in Jo'burg and kept it as a keepsake. It was worth about 1/100th of a newspaper. A roll of toilet paper was about 2,000,000,000, so it literally is cheaper to wipe your arse with cash.
