    Remember, when your currency stop being accepted in Zimbabwe, you’re doing something seriously wrong.

      Ah yes, Zimbabwe, the country formerly known as Rhodesia and home of the first trillion currency unit banknote. Another prosperous, albeit discriminatory, African (including those north of the Sahara) country brought to ruin by “democracy”.

        In between my Nexus 7 (2013) tablet and its cover is a 100 Trillion Zimbabwe dollar bill. Best $6 I’ve ever spend.

          Can I interest you in some Tanzanian 2000 shilling bills, (currently worth $1.24 apiece) left over from a trip to another failed African state?

          I have one too! I have the trillion dollar sequence of Zimbabwe dollars. 🙂

    “The collapse of the merger was a sharp change of course by Ms. Ramphele,
    who said last week that the agreement with the Democratic Alliance
    would remove South Africa’s racial legacy from the country’s politics.”
