What’s our money worth?

Zimbabwe’s dropping of 10 zeros off its currency (7/31, A-13, “Zeros lopped off currency; The country hopes to ease record inflation, officially set at 2.2 million percent”) made we wonder about the worth of our money.

If our national debt continues to increase, how long will it be until the zeros are dropped from our $100 bills? I am too old for it to affect me, but I do feel sorry for our grandchildren.
