Submission + - Is 64 bits enough for Zimbabwe?

dmcq writes: There is an article from the BBC http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/7515823.stm Zimbabwe introduces Z$100bn note. This note would buy a loaf of bread at the time the article was written. This is already way over what can be represented in a 32 bit integer and annual inflation is 2,200,000%.. Has that affected anyone so far or would a quantity that couldn't fit in 64 bits cause trouble in business?
