the world's poorest billionnaires - Zimbabwe money crisis

interesting read of the day...
(a colleague forwarded this, not news.. but still appalling to read about).

as we complain of our groceries getting more expensive by the day... let us take a look at how 3 raw eggs can go for a whopping 100 billion dollars in this country!

the Zimbabwe money crisis.

isn't it scary how inflation/ money crisis can completely wreak the entire economic landscape and livelihood of a nation? can't imagine how these people have to lug around that mountain load of cash everyday just to buy the most basic, lowest-valued daily necessity... or even earning enough, in the first place, to afford it.

the world's poorest billionnaires indeed.
