Land of Billionaires

-- HARARE, Zimbabwe -- On Wednesday, central bank governor Gideon Gono announced he was dropping 10 zeros from the currency, to turn 10 billion dollars into one, effective Friday.

That comes a week after he introduced a 100 billion-dollar note that was not enough to buy a loaf of bread.
But, hey... it's not all bad news.
