When Dr.Evil infamously demanded a ransom of $100 billion, he was laughed off by the world leaders of the 60s since that much money didn’t even exist. Now, they can fulfill his demands with a single note (he didn’t specify the currency, did he?).
The Zimbabwe dollar has lost so much of its value that they have had to print notes of 10, 20, 50 and 100 trillion dollars. There’s hyperinflation for you.
I wonder if there’s such a thing as negative inflation where the currency actually becomes more valuable. That would be really cool.
