### How to buy a vehicle in Zimbabwe

Here is a photograph of a Zimbabwean bank cheque somebody sent to me.

This person bought a farm vehicle for "One Quintrillion, Seventy Two Trillion Four Hundred and Eighteen Billion and Three Million" Zimbabwe dollars.

Or in numbers

Zim $ 1,072,418,003,000,000.00

Or for you scientists out there

Zim $ 1.072418 x 10E30

Just goes to show that everybody in Zimbabwe is suddenly a mathematician to keep up with their inflation rate.

Inflation is rising every 9 hours or so!

Hey - at the parallel rate on that date of 570 billion to one USD, that cheque is only worth USD 1 881 - bargain price for a farm vehicle!!

LOL@hex!

> bargain price for a farm vehicle!!

Ja, but what fuel is it going to run off?

I really feel sorry for the Zimbabwean people. An interesting question would be if one had absolute power in Zimbabwe, how would one go about fixing this mess?

According to the Zim reserve bank

ZWD 63,761,761,010.94 per US$1

That puts a tractor at $16,819.34 (which sounds a little low).

I like to comment on hex!! HAHAHA!
