World's Most Worthless Currencies

#1 is the new 10,000,000 Zimbabwe dollar banknote (pictured above), which is currently worth less than $4. See the list here.

Most worthless currency?

Not entirely sure you know: that bill there is worth, umm, some 4 times what a US $1 bill is worth, isn't it?

(Yes, yes, I know, but it's Wednesday, time for my weekly outburst of pedantry.)

Just to say, I wouldn't give someone more than $1 for that bill. I would be buying it to keep as artwork, not as money, therefore by the time I unload it, inflation would have made it worth a matter of pennies.

Shhh...don't let Mugabe know that he has ruined his own country. He might actually believe that he lost the election.

Is it not remarkable that a man who has single-handedly brought a prosperous nation to total economic chaos, is fighting to stay in control?

Interesting post regarding inflation in the U.S. and the benefit of Chinese imports to low income Americans.
