Hyperinflation: In Zimbabwe, Everyone's a Multi-Billionaire

Think that the economy is bad? Be thankful that we're not in Zimbabwe, where $100 billion note buys you ... three eggs!

After the collapse of the agriculture sector in Zimbabwe in 2000, the inflation in that country skyrocketed to 231 million percent a year! Just think about it - 231 000 000%! Unemployment went up to 80% and a third of country’s population left it.

Let`s now have a look at the photos that you may not be able to see anywhere else in the world.

@redphone - sorry, if you look closely at the bill in the picture you can see that it's only worth $100 billion until Dec 31, 2008. It's pretty bad when your economy goes bad before the milk in the fridge does.
