Jewish answer: It depends on whether it's a talent of gold, a talent of silver, or any other metal. There are talents of gold, silver, copper (Exodus ch.38), and other metals.
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)
