What is money? A rabid free marketeer puts his foot in lots of notes

Martlark

Surprisingly, Zimbabwe 100 Trillion Dollar notes are now worth much more than the paper and ink. See: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Zimbabwe-100-Trillion-Dollars-Banknotes-AA-2008-UNC-50-100-Trillion-Series-/281789318269?hash=item419bf3c47d , where the asking price is almost $25USD.

Cost over ten years don't make sense

To get a saving of 500,000 tonnes of carbon that must be over ten years when compared to coal. For 10 years that'd cost $47 mil over the same amount of coal power. To purchase the same amount of carbon credits on the markets would only cost $10mil. I'm suposing the $37mil difference is the value of smugness.
