If it doesn’t work… uh, let’s try it again.

zim dollarZimbabwe’s currency woes are old news. When we complain of the rising price of tomato sauce and toilet paper, we actually have no idea what we’re moaning about. Not too long ago, three eggs cost one hundred billion Zim dollars (too many zeros, so we just write the words out in full). Then the Zimbabwe dollar became extinct and US dollars bought the eggs.

Now President Mugabe plans to resuscitate the failed currency, but it will be known as the ‘bond note’. And this is new news, as reported by Peta Thornycroft in The Telegragh. You can read the whole story here.
