Artist Laura Gilberts' print 'The Zero Dollar' protesting the breakdown of the American economy. Gilbert distributed 10,000 of the fake greenbacks in front of the New York Stock Exchange on Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2008 to call attention to the economic crisis gripping the nation.
She says the artwork is meant to be a statement about "the destructive role of many financial institutions, inflation, and the decline of U.S. currency to the point of seeming worthlessness."

Zero dollar apparently is worth at least 3 one dollar bills, at least to one person.
I think that's a great idea - we should quit using the corrupt Federal Reserves Funny money and trade with something else.

Here's the clincher. In a few years time, when the dollar's massive trade deficit has caught up with it, this Zero dollar bill will probably be worth more than a hundred dollar bill.
After all, its artwork and at a limited run of 100,000 its a damn sight rarer than a real dollar bill.
