Brazil now has a $200 bill. The latest Brazilian money, the Real, was introduced in 1994. So far, the largest bill was $100. In 26 years, an inflation of about 2.7% per year would have caused the currency to lose half of its value. The actual annual inflation rate has been at least twice that. So, in practical terms, a $200 bill makes sense... but I still don't like it.
It doesn't tickle my fancy either. The bill was released in the capital cities yesterday. Haven't seen one yet.
Right, and I just found out it is the same size as the $20 bill. Kind of dumb, ruins the whole accessibility thing. I like the white-gray color, looks sleek.
Brazil is not particularly inclusive regarding those with disabilities. That just reafirms policy makers don't care about that.

In fact, the bill has three marks in relief so that those with disabilities can recognize it.
Good to know there are those marks there (I haven't followed, nor I understand the fuss around the new bill). In any case, the marks solve the problem for people with a particular disability. The size solves the problem for others.
