Hyperinflation Tourism

From my friend Rejoice Ngwenya in Zimbabwe:

Greetings, my friends!

What is it like to live [and hopefully NOT die!] in an economy whose currency denominations are calibrated in trillions? How do ‘average’ citizens go by their daily lives? What about trying to live a ‘normal’ life where there is very little running water, electricity and virtually impassable roads?

If you know any tour operators who have an interest in running trips to Zimbabwe for research students of economics, business, finance or simply ‘failed states’, give them my contact details.

Latest: a loaf of bread costs ZD2 500 000 000 000. If you want to find how much this is, come to Zim on a HyperInflation tourism package. You’ll love our zero sum game!


It’s tongue-in-cheek, but the reality of daily life in Zimbabwe is becoming unbearable.
