Zimbabwe’s new currency (sans three zeroes, versus the old issue) is getting off to shaky start. The old currency has been declared null and void, leaving thousands of citizens with piles of paper now good for nothing but kindling. (The currency exchange period was too brief to allow many people to spend or exchange their old bills. Some tribesmen in remote areas didn’t find out about the currency swap until after it was over.) With a 1,000% inflation rate, it is only a matter of time before prices set in the new currency no longer look like “bargains.”
