From the BBC:
Zimbabwe introduces Z$100bn note
Zimbabwe is to introduce a bank-note worth Z$100bn in response to rampant inflation – but the note will barely cover the cost of a loaf of bread.
Some Zimbabweans are already calling for higher denominations in a country where the official annual inflation rate has exceeded 2,200,000%.
Independent economists believe the real rate is many times higher.
Zimbabwe’s meltdown has left at least 80% of the population in poverty, facing mass shortages of basic goods.
The country’s central bank has introduced several new notes already this year in response to the hyperinflation.
In January, a Z$10 million note was issued, followed by a Z$50 million. By June the denominations had reached tens of billions.
Inflation is so bad there that the price of a bottle of beer in a restaurant has been known to more than double between the beginning of lunch and the end of lunch.
