10,000 talents is worth about 150,000 year's wages.
Here's the calculation:
1 talent = 60 minas
1 mina = 3 month's wages
1 talent = 60 x (3 months' wages) = 180 months' wages
1 talent = 180 months' wages / 12 months in a year = 15 years' wages
1 talent = 15 years' wages
10,000 talents = 150,000 years' wages.
So if a yearly wage is $15,000 (about 40hrs/week at CA min wage ($8/hr)
150,000 year's wages = 2,250,000,000
(Two Billion, Two Hundred Fifty Million dollars US)

Footnote of NIV Bible Luke 19:13
In the first century, ten thousand talents would have been an unimaginably large sum. We could have a team of economists attempt to estimate the equivalent value in today's money after adjustment for inflation and living standards, but they would probably not reach agreement. It was probably not more than a trillion dollars.
In the parable of the unjust steward recorded in Matthew's Gospel (18:23-24), Matthew must have known his audience would see the ten thousand talent debt which the king cancelled as pure rhetoric.

A talent as a measure of money weighed around 33kg (75lb) of gold. In todays terms that's worth around 825,000 US Dollars or 415,679 UK Pounds. So 3200 Talents are worth around 2,640,000,000 US Dollars or 1,330,172,800 UK Pounds in todays terms. That would do me very nicely ;)
