    $217 US dollars? No problem, with the conversion rate that is like, 120 trillion Zimbabwe whatevers.

    Edit: aaand that was covered in the article. I should probably read the whole story before trying to make a lame joke.

    I suggest they try trading. Spend the $217 on something, find someone looking for that item and swap it for something more valuable. Keep doing that until they have something worth $140 million and their money woes will be over. There's a TV show where 2 guys do it all the time, so it must be real and very easy to do. :)

    The wonderful peace and prosperity that can be achieved when native peoples toss off the yoke of globalist exploitation and oppression.

    Right, Kirk?

    It seems to me that the richest 1% of Zimbabweans aren't paying their fair share. They have literally tens of dollars in the bank and they hoard it instead of redistributing their wealth.

    Yes. The US federal government has property that's probably worth trillions. It also has the power to tax a nation that produces $17+ trillion/ year, at will.

    After a massive genocide. I'd sell the resources to the highest bidder. Them Chicks would be all over it, too. Especially with none of them apes to interfere with business.

    Yeah, after 100 trillion dollar denomination "zim dollars" were being literally used as toilet paper, the country went back to using the U.S. dollar.
