What Will $35 Quadrillion Zimbabwe Dollars Get You?

160 ratings | 33282 views
On June 15 the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe took the last step in the process of ditching its currency. Zimbabwe dollars will be decommissioned at a rate of 35 quadrillion per US dollar. Any remaining Zimbabwe dollars in circulation after September 30 2015 will be officially, as opposed to practically, worthless. Withdrawing all Zimbabwe dollar banknotes from circulation officially brings an end to the era of people carrying cash around in large bags and even wheelbarrows to do their everyday shopping. In 2009, the end of the decade long recession saw the government adopt the US dollar as its main currency. Since then people have effectively used US dollars or South African rand in everyday life, while an increasingly small number of Zimbabwe dollars (with virtually no value) remained in circulation. http://feeds.mashable.com/~r/Mashable/~3/PdefnkVOPo0/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

if my calculation is correct, any zimbabwe dollar note with less than 100 trillion face value is better used as toilet paper rather than currency.

$35.88 of the U.S.A dollars in the year 2018 is equal to 1 U.S.A dollar in the year 1665.

Their currency is trash, thanks to an incompetent leader like Mugabe who can't even run a country.

335,650,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, which is 335.65 septillion dollars, and 1 septillion is 1,000,000,000,000,000 (or 1 quadrillion) times more than 1 trillion.

35 QUADRILLION = $1.00 !!!! HOLY COW !!! ....I can just imagine this conversation occurring: Student: "In what contexts is the word quadrillion typically used?" Teacher: "When calculating macroscopic distances/quantities/phenomena in physics...and the number Zimbabwe dollars needed for a bottle of water."
Sorry that was 2 minutes ago it now costs an entire planet
