Revaluing US currency

in 1960 france revalued its currency
so that 100 old francs
equalled 1 new 'heavy' franc

(i tried and failed
to find the ?fleming quote
where bond briefly enjoys
being a millionaire
via old francs)

and i'd like to see the usa
revalue 10 for 1

effectively rolling back prices to 1946

so that dollar stores
would again be dime stores

forbes 400 us billionaires
would be reduced to 21

and pennies made of copper
would again be cost-effective
