Zimbabwe

Did you know -- Annualized inflation in Zimbabwe, late 2008, was estimated to be: 89.7 sextillion percent?

  1. According to the article, that's what the annual rate was estimated to be in November. The next month, it was estimated at 65 million googol %! (That's the first time I've seen a real-world measurement of googol.)

    Wow. Of course, it's on it's way to infinity, and that currency was abandoned soon after.
