Brazilian newspaper Gazeta Mercantil's "Understand the real value of money" print ad uses shocking images of money to tout the newspaper's analysis of the financial market, as well as political and social events
influencing the world's economy.
Whether you agree with their political point of view, the artwork is quite interesting (the small pic above just didn't do it justice). And they're really not just singling out the Big Bad US - the print ads also skewer the Japanese Yen (bleeding eyes of Yukichi Fukuzawa? Whoa!) and the Euro.
Coloribus has much larger versions of the ads: http://www.coloribus.com/paedia/prints/2008/5/13/200603/show/ - via Reddit
