Zimbabwe: Hero to Zero: A brief history of the Zimbabwe dollar

Kubatana blog announces the release of a new DVD, Hero to Zero: A brief history of Zimbabwe dollar: “… a new DVD. Hero to zero: A brief history of the Zimbabwe dollar, tells the story of the nosedive of our precious Zimbabwe Kwacha, from Independence in 1980 – when 1 Zimbabwe dollar would return you 2 US dollars, to today, when 1 billion (old) Zimbabwe dollars isn’t enough to exchange for 1 US dollar.”
