Zimbabwe's inflation rate at 66,000%
That's x 660 for those not bothered with percentages.
ZIMBABWE'S normally bare shop shelves were brimming with Valentine's Day cards yesterday, but there was bad news on the economic front: annual inflation has soared to more than 66,000 per cent.
The state Central Statistical Office has admitted that inflation for last December stood at a staggering 66,212.3 per cent.
Can anyone imagine fuel at £660 per liter instead of £1. Thought not.
