wanna be a trillionaire?

Move to Zimbabwe!

Zimbabwe is introducing a Z$100 trillion note, currently worth about US$30 (£20), state media reports.

Other notes in trillion-dollar denominations of 10, 20 and 50 are also being released to help Zimbabweans cope with hyperinflation. ~ Source: BBC News

Pictured is a Z$50 billion note, worth less than two cents US.
