Approaching Record Territory

Monthly inflation has hit 500,000% in Zimbabwe. The annual rate is running about 2,790,000,000,000,000,000%. Terrifyingly enough, it still has got to grow to set new records. Right now, prices are doubling somewhat more quickly than every two days - the record requires every fifteen hours.

The most interesting thing will be seeing what eventually makes it come back down, though.
