$10 Million Bill Introduced In Zimbabwe

For thos of you who don't know what hyperinflation looks like, apparently it's going on in Zimbabwe and they just had to start printing $10 million notes.

Apparently 15 months ago a $20 Zimbabwe bill was worth about two and a half cents US, but as recently as a month ago this stack is what it cost to purchase a single beer.

Yep - think about something like that here.

Think about having to stand at the vending machine for an hour and a half feeding in singles to buy a pop.

Yep ... we COULD be heading that way ...
