What 100 Trillion Dollars Looks Like (Inflation? What Inflation?)

With all the talk of inflation down the line as the US Dollar slowly but surely implodes, we thought we'd take a bit of a humorous Friday approach to the topic. Below is a picture of what 100 Trillion Dollars looks like.

Well, 100 Trillion Zimbabwean Dollars, that is.

Inflation? What inflation?

One would think that 100 trillion dollars would be quite the spectacle, but it's really not when you have a ten trillion dollar bill. This just goes to show that things can always be worse-off somewhere else, so keep that in mind. Who cares about inflation when you've got hyperinflation to worry about. And to those unaware of the situation, no this is not a joke. A loaf of bread in Zimbabwe costs $16 million Zimbabwean Dollars... at least it did back in 2008. Who knows what it costs a year later.
