|Subject||Money in Zimbabwe|
|Bob Mugabe||President Mugabe printed extremely large currency values in order to solve Zimbabwe's hyperinflation. Some of the largest numbers possible had to be used, including "100 Trillion" (see above).|
Today, the largest denomination printed in the U.S.A. is $100. The printing of larger bills stopped a long time ago.
CBS News claims the U.S. central government printed $1.2 Trillion in 2009. However a British newspaper, the Sun, says it would take 72 years just to print only $1 Trillion! Even the U.S. Bureau of Engraving says that they only printed a few billion dollars in order to replace some wrinkled money that people were careless with.
CONCLUSION: CBS News is incorrect about how much money was printed. Many computer graphics prove it's not possible to print that much money, and to compare President Obama with President Mugabe seems racist.
