I can remember the days in the early to mid nineties when you could get the US Dollar for well under ZW $10. It was so readily available and you could pick up your foreign currency from the bank on the day that you ordered it. As the years went by and the economic and political situation got a little shaky it became harder and harder to get your hands on forex. The situation has only gotten worse as time has gone by. I was in Zimbabwe at the beginning of the year when US $1 would get you about ZW $15,000 to ZW $20,000 depending on where you changed your money. I would not have thought that it would reach the levels it has reached. The instability in the economy has made a lot of people very rich and very quick!!
It is beyond me how the economic situation has reached the level it is currently at.
