Zimbabwe should just post all its currency on Ebay

July 23, 2008

The official exchange rate for Zimbabwe dollars is (July 23, 2008) is 1 US Dollar = 33,288,144,660 Zimbabwe Dollars, but according to this story a UK pound is trading for $1.4 trillion Zimbabwe dollars.

However today on Ebay a $100 billion Zimbabwean note (real?) has a bid price of 40 GBP (practically $80 US) and a number of bidders for 12 available bills.  Clearly Zimbabwean currency is worth a lot more than the usual channels!
