Zimbabwe: Where’s the breaking point?

Ethan discusses how corrupt and/or incredibly incomptent financial policy in Zimbabwe has resulted in hyperinflation that is bringing about a total collapse of the country’s economy. Government pensioners receive $13,000 a month, which is enough to buy a single sandwich, university students are protesting up to 2000% hikes in fees, doctors in public hospitals are on strike. “Most disturbing,” he writes, “to me, at least, is a sense from some Zimbabwean bloggers that revolution would be better than watching the economy slowly collapse.”
