In that time, apparently, the value has dropped ~30,000,000,000 dollars.
That is $1,607.51 per second.
He would have had to take a stack of 16 hundred dollar bills and light it on fire.
For seven months.
Burning money is hard work:
Million quid from 1994 with inflation is US$2,448,144.01. It took over an hour to burn that much money by hand by two (or three Gimpo helps at times) people.

Is that some legalese standing in for “in how many ways”?
