    Haha, what if you bought 1 1 trillion dollar note, then held on to it until the government stabilized and Mugabe got out of power and the economy rebounded and the honored them? You wouldn't need MUCH improvement for the economy to rebound to see your $300 USD investment balloon into something much more.

    Situation is pretty horrible there and it's a part of the world that doesn't get the attention it should too.

    What are you talking about? The Australian Cricket team refused to play there a couple years ago out of protest. What more attention does it need? :nuts:

    If only there was another country who would storm in there in spite of everyone's advice or common sense and just oust a leader who has done little good for his country in the last decade. This sounds familiar. Does Zimbabwe have WMD's (or oil)?

    Yeah, it's pretty bad over there. The only other time I heard anything as catastrophic as that happening to a currency was with the old Deutsch Mark back in the few years after the First World War before Hitler turned their economy around.

    I hope it doesn't get much worse for the poor Zimbabwean people. :(

    Mugabe may be a syphilitic megalomaniac paranoid sociopath, but the real objects of disgust here should be the sycophantic motherfuckers running every southern African country with the exception of Botswana and Malawi.

    I'm completely revolted by the kowtowing from the successive leadership of what is supposed to be the most powerful economy in Africa, allowing this senile cunt to utterly destroy that magnificent country. Fucking wankers. HE LOST THE FUCKING ELECTION - boot the fucker out.*

    The inflation rate exceeded that of the Weimar republic about two years ago, ZeroSignal. Currently around 3 000 deaths from cholera in the last two months and our rivers have been infected (in part at least) by these poor buggers coming across for treatment.

    * I don't know that Tsvangarai would be a great leader, but he couldn't be worse.
