Eine Billion Dollar is a 2001 novel by German writer Andreas Eschbach. Its plot revolves around a young pizza driver from New York City, who inherits a trillion US dollars from one of his ancestors who lived in 16th century Florence. With the money comes a prophecy that he must use it to give humanity back its lost future. The title is correctly translated into English as "One Trillion Dollars", as it refers to the long scale use of the word billion (10


{\displaystyle ^{12}}

), which is called a trillion in the short scale.
