Can you change a billion?

I really suck at maths. This was proven true when last playing the "New Millennium" Edition of Monopoly where the dollar values have gone up into the millions and I couldn't get my head around getting two million dollars every time you pass go.

So I would probably get short changed a lot if I lived in Zimbabwe.

Yes that man is a holding a $500,000,000 note - that's five hundred million dollars. But reports that as hyperinflation continues to cripple the nation (a loaf of bread costs $25 billion dollars), they are going to start produce $25 billion and $50 billion notes.

The government of Robert Magabe is crippling the African country and revolution is bound to hit sooner rather than later.
