With the doom and gloom with money markets all arround the world, It will be interesting to find out who is making the obcene ammounts of profit that usually occurs in situations like this.

You're right - hence million, billion, trillion, quadrillion - only problem is European and US definitions of these differ in the multiple used.

Thank goodness someone understands.

Still more noughts!

The clock for Zimbabwe would probably need to be many times this size given their inflation rate.

And with the overall spending rate for the UK (public and personal combined) I wonder how long it will be before we join this (exclusive?) club.
