He has a 100 Trillion Dollar Zimbabwae bill, 5 Million Dollar bill and a 50 Million dollar bill from the Third Reich and uses them to contrast their value, which today is zero, with a silver eagle which still holds it value.
The unbridled money printing of money by governments throughout history has lead to hyperinflation and the inflated numerical value printed on these past failed fiat currencies. Despite the bill saying it is 100 billion dollars or millions of dollars they won’t purchase anything in real terms.
