This is so funny...

RBZ urges gold-backed Zim dollar

THE central bank says the country must consider adopting a gold-backed Zimbabwean dollar warning that the US greenback’s days as the world’s reserve currency are numbered.

Government ditched the Zimbabwe dollar in 2009 after it had been rendered worthless by record inflation levels and adopted multiple foreign currencies with the US dollar, the South African Rand and the Botswana being the most widely used.

Finance minister Tendai Biti says the country needs at least six months import cover and a sustainable track-record of economic growth, inflation stability and above 60 percent capacity utilisation in industry before the Zim dollar can be brought back into circulation.
However central bank chief, Dr Gideon Gono said the country should consider adopting a gold-backed currency.


Epic. WAY TO GO ZIMBABWE! You have seen the light! Took you a while....

How long before Zimbabwe gets invaded for having a real currency? After all the MSM would find it quite easy to find ``reasons`` to invade... Mugabe is, after all, a ruthless dictator.

I seriously cannot stop laughing. This is just too epic.

Cue the ``You know you a joke when`` ... ``Zimbabwe has a more credible currency than yours.``

Make Zimbabwe currency the world currency!

Do you actually know anything about Zimbabwe and the reasons for them using the dollar in the first place?

Of course I know. Hyperinflation, second biggest inflation rate in history. Crappy economic policies, printing, etc...

Rhodesia (former Zimbabwe name) was pretty rich back in the day... now they might just go back to being rich again if they go to a gold-back currency... and if they apply the theory to the letter...

Yeah spot on.. I wasn't sure from your post if you knew that..
They were the second biggest economy in Africa and completly self sustained at one point..
I doubt they will be rich again though, well not in the immediate future.. The infrastructure has totally fallen apart there..

Does Zimbabwe have enough gold to back a gold based currency?

If they do, I tip my hat to them. Of course, the first time that they default on a loan because they can't print more unbacked money to pay it off the currency would collapse, but it's a good start.
