Robert B. mentioned that Internet old-timer Clayton Cramer posted this to his blog: Wow! $1/Watt Solar Panels! (FWIW, I can a remember reading Clayton Cramer Usenet posts back around 1989. That was back before the days of web browsers, when we would log in to the text-only Usenet.)

Cathy Buckle mentioned in a recent African Tears post: “Air Zimbabwe announced that one return air fare from Harare to London had increased to $804 million Zimbabwe Dollars. To put that price into context is the recently publicised information by the Teachers Union saying that government school teachers presently earn an average salary of just $17 million Zimbabwe Dollars a month.” When last reported, it cost $3,450,000 Zimbabwe Dollars to buy one US Dollar, and and meat now costs about $5 million Zimbabwe Dollars per kilogram.
