Zimbabwe deserves whatever happens to it. The blacks drove out the whites with glee in the hopes of seizing the white-owned farms and then they were betrayed from their own acts of thievery when Mugabe and his minions came along to pillage the farms first.

Let them starve and wallow in their mess of their own making.

Remove your money from the country and yourselves as well. It is over.

The bank (RBZ) is currently working on the modalities of implementing the scheme.

I would have thought they were already proficient in theft! Maybe it's a matter of the proper attire?

Brilliant move. This will help immensely.

Why Mugabe and his ZANU moron thugs are not yet room temperature is beyond me.

It is envisaged that the government, through the central bank, would use the scheme to borrow funds from the FCAs which would be repaid after some time but with interest.

Yeah. Sure it will.

"Never" is some time; lots of it.

The southern African nation, once a regional economic star, has seen export earnings this year decline . . .

Another toss out the white government and put in the majority black government that knew absolutely nothing about money, how to run a government, how to run an economy. A government set up to make this pig wealthy by stealing land and now starves his country because they have no one able to even farm, as they took over the white farms. Right. Call whites racists? This pig is as big a racist as there is. But, of course, we all know that "people of color" cannot be racists, only whites can. /sarcasm still on.

He got the idea from the Clintons?

If I remember correctly at least one Arkansas public employees retirement fund was a kind of slush fund for BJ and there's "The Clinton Pension Grab." See the Executive Summary of the Joint Economic Committee, 1995

http://www.house.gov/jec/cost-gov/regs/eti/grab.htm

"The Clinton Administration has launched a behind the scenes, incremental strategy to fund its social agenda by tapping into the $3.5 trillion private pension system."

If I remember corectly BJ wanted a "one-time only" 25 percent payment from the private retirement funds.

Hey, there might still be a tiny glimmer of activity left in Zimbabwe's once flourishing economy. Can't have that! You would thing that after a hundred years Communists would get at least half a clue regarding basic economics but no dice.

This illustrates one of the many ingrained fallacy's of Marxism. That is that Marxists believe that wealth is the unconditional property of the masses and does not require skill, hard work and perseverance to produce. They look at wealthy individuals and assume that they must have gotten their money by exploiting the poor. In reality; it is the entrepreneurs that create the wealth in the first place and the masses that benefit the most from it. Usually far in excess of the people that actually create it. In this case, a relatively tiny percentage of the population, (the white farmers), fed the entire country, provided jobs and provided a huge tax base to run the government. Just one of many reasons that Marxism never works.

Don't hold your breath. Get your money out now if you can.

FrontPageMag had an article about Ethiopia's Mengistu and he did exactly, nearly, what Mugabe has been doing. The two know each other well.

I take no particular joy in stating that I called that one a year ago. The banks are always toward the last to go because Marxism in practice is all about Other People's Money.

How classic is it? Well, Karl Marx himself complained bitterly that the Paris Commune fell because it failed to sieze the banks. That was 1871. This stuff has been going on for a long, long time.
