Harare, Zimbabwe (AHN) - Who wants to be a billionaire? Go to Zimbabwe.

The central bank of Zimbabwe will release a new bank note, a 100 billion Zimbabwe dollar note, on Monday in a move to curb rampant cash shortages in the country. The 10-digit denominated note, however, is only equivalent to one dollar in American currency.

Billionaire? Pfft, I'll just wait to go to Zimbabwe until next week, so I can be a Trillionaire. Or maybe next month, so I can be a Zillionaire.

You can just wait here and everyone will become a millionaire soon enough.

Isn't that a good thing?

Looks like the USD is headed for the same path. Better dump those USD before it is too late. Buy real money instead:

When the US makes owning these pretty things illegal, they'll be worth even more as long as you can find a close network to buy/sell them with!

Well that would be a drop for me. But yeah I hear yah. I always aimed high and wanted to be a billionaire growing up, with the way things are going, that's not going to be such a significant accomplishment.
