Zimbabwean Dollar

Techno Geek posting

I received this really funny email about the Hyperinflation in Zimbabwe:

THIS WAS ORIGINALLY SENT ON 13/02/2009.

ZIMBABWE!!!  PUTTING THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE!!







One 200 000 dollar note equals less than $0.10 cents.







December 22nd, a new note of 500 000 dollars introduced to the market!







Next – 750 000 dollars.







January – new note of 10 million dollars.








This US $10 dollar note is worth 10 times more than the 10 million dollars
Zimbabwe note.







A case worth 65 billion
Zimbabwe dollars which equals to $2000 US dollars.






This guy is going to a supermarket. The exchange rate is 25 million
Zimbabwe dollars for 1 US dollar.






This mountain of cash is worth $100.







50 Million note is then introduced!







Next is 250 million dollars note!







Sorry, how much is this t-shirt? – It’s cheap, only about 3 billion dollars!







May – a note of 500 million dollars is introduced!







June – note worth 25 and 50 billion are printed.







And finally – 100 billion dollars note!







What can you buy for it? Well, these 3 eggs for example.







That’s how people went to restaurants!







And the bills:








In August, the government devalued
Zimbabwe dollar by removing 10 zeros from notes.






However, inflation kept going up and in September for this amount of cash you could only buy 4 tomatoes.







And for this – some bread.







And then it started again: 20 000 dollars note in September.







50 000 a couple of weeks ago!








The 500 000 and 1,000,000 (new currency) notes have just been released.

The country’s currency plunged to a new record low on Monday, trading at an
average Z$28,4 quadrillion to the U.S. dollar and triggering massive price
increases….The hyperinflation is now estimated at over a quintillion percent, although
no one really knows.





All of which explains the attached pictures of the toilet… 😀
