$100 Trillion dollar bill

Zimbabwe has now put out a new banknote with the value of 100 trillion Zim-dollars.

now before you imagine a country that is doing so well that they make the exploits Richie Rich or rappers in a rap video look like paupers, it should be noted that the 100 trillion Zimbabwe dollar is only worth about $300 US dollars.

the country had to put out the new note because their economy is facing a huge wave of hyperinflation.

This is a sharp turn for the country that was once seen as on of Africa's most prosperous countries.
