This is for example (according to wikipedia)

the worth of 100 billion ZWD not so long ago, before the dropping of zeroes that took place before the droppingof zeroes I was talking about in my previous post.

Right now it`s like 1 USD = 600 ZWL, but that`s fairly new, they`ve also changed code several times, ZWD -> ZWN -> ZWL

@KatieLady47, that is now, because they dropped zeroes not so long ago (again), but by the time this was published, it was worth about 14 USD

How many people here know that Zimbabwe was once called Rhodesia? It was run by a white minority, and they actually exported food. Then the world demanded that they have democratic elections and imposed crippling sanctions till they agreed.

Well, they got their "democracy" -- Mugabe style: one man, one vote, one time. Robert Mugabe got elected by telling the people that the only reason the whites had all the wealth is that they had stolen it from the blacks, and he would take it back, which he did. He confiscated all the white-owned farms and gave them to his supporters. They had neither the expertise nor the ambition to run them, and the farms all went to ruin. Now their economy is in shambles, the people are starving, and the country has become one of the most oppressive police states on the planet -- their brutality limited only by their incompetence.

But hey, it sure beats white minority rule, doesn`t it?


...y...yes?

Agreed OldOllie, he shoulda taken lessons from Papa Doc Duvalier and General Idi Amin Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Sea. That wouldn`t have improved things much but at least he could`ve come up with a better title for himself.

That is correct, OldOllie. It`s the only result one can expect from totalitarian regimes.

Chad would like to thank all those who supported all his hard effort and graciously believed he was a prince from Zimbabwe who wanted to give them money. Your bank account is appreciated.

No, the reason it isn`t worth much is because its got a picture of a cow pooping out blue squares with crosses on them right next to a steaming pile of Zimbabwe Democracy At Work

Maybe they put the rock on there because its the only thing in the country thats still worth something, I dunno.

They got up to $1,000,000,000,000 notes before the government enforced a ban on inflation. And those of you saying it`s a lot of money, their money has deflated drastically in the past few years, since the government got involved.

8th Nov 08, one US dollar was 669000000000 (669 Billion) Zim dollars!

And here was one of their banknotes- http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en...

Yeah, it really depends which day that picture was taken for how much it`s worth. If for example that picture was taken on 26 July 2006 it would be worth $18.

On January 1st 2009 it would have been worth $0.00000000000000000000001

Based on wikipedia, that particular dollar was only available between 2007 and 2008. The government fixed the currency during that time and it was worth $50.11 before July 2007 and 31 cents after July 2007 until it was discontinued.

Currency conversion rates are pointless for Zimbabwe, besides the "official" rate which the government artificially maintains there`s the black market rates, which the country actually runs on and are drastically different. Last time I was out Z$1 mil was about £2.50, but that that`s likelye to have changed quite a lot.

Baal is right, money is pretty much worthless in Zimbabwe, exchange rates mean nothing.

Ok, seriously, you guys, talking about how much it is worth is pointless.

It degrades in value by the HOUR. Seriously, here is a list of all countries, listed by inflation rate. Link.

Whilst the second worst country in the WORLD, (Ethiopia) is struggling to survive at 45%, Zimbabwe has an inflation rate at 15 BILLION %.

Erm, no, it is worth nowhere near $2800, not $28`000, not even if it is the fourth revalued Zimbabwean dollar which is unlikely.

Seriously, take a look at Zimbabwean inflation, link to the dollar too

Yeah, I`m retarded, ignore that. Zimbabwe dollars are pretty much worthless. And also apparently no longer in circulation.

It may convert into $2800, but that doesn`t mean it`s worth the equivalent of $2800 of goods in Zimbabwe.

It`s closer to $2800. I`d be pretty happy if I won that, too.
