MONEY TO BURN

Tons of shredded and compressed banknotes are unloaded from a truck at the Foundation to Help Autism in Miskolc, Hungary, on Tuesday. Hungary is the only country to recycle its worn cash for fuel each year, a total of about US$1 billion worth of forints. The bricks are sent to a few charities, covering up to a third of their annual heating fuel supplies.Feb 09, 2012
