$100 Trillion Note Unveiled in Zimbabwe

It has been 4 days since we demonstrated Zimbabwe's recently issued $50 billion note... Press reports indicate that deflationary attempts in this Southern African country have failed and Zimbabwe has decided to introduce a $100 Trillion note. We have no clue how the 14 zeros manage to fit on a small piece of paper (this is British numerology). The new note is worth roughly US $33 today and a few cents tomorrow. In the meantime U.S. printing presses work overtime to catch up.

In the meantime, wife of the totally nutso dictator Mugabe has been seen carting wheelbarrels of the new specimens to stores in Hong Kong, much to the chagrin of the thousands of Zimbabweans dying everyday from cholera. Way to go United Nations. Sphere: Related Content
