This is a one hundred trillion dollar Federal Reserve Note. (It's from the Zimbabwe printing press, not the Bernanke Publishing Company.)
No one in Zimbabwe thought they would ever hold one of these.
The people who inflated Zimbabwe's currency to the point of uselessness claimed to be doing so for the good of The People.
This piece of paper isn't linked to anything of value, just like the U.S. currency isn't linked to anything of value.
Printing one hundred trillion-dollar banknotes creates massive problems for the general populace, but it solves problems for the elite few who run the government printing presses. Therefore, the elite few are going to run the shit out of the government printing presses.
Like Zimbabwe, the U.S. has very few safeguards in place to prevent someone from printing all the money they think we need, and using it to pay their buddies for stimulus packages, TARP plans, deficit non-reduction schemes, and the like.
It will happen here. Hide and watch.
