When professor became finance minister bread was a measly $1 a loaf 🍞. Professor said he would "add-value"to the $. He has done a great job... bread 🍞 is now $345 a loaf and still going up. Zanupf must be proud of their minister who said he would resign if the Zim dollar failed which he failed to do.

Well those who understand Dynamics of Economics will concur with me that this week's Auction was partially fair and points the right direction to a market determined exchange rate
This is how the RTGS stabilezed during that period of closer to a year when the local unit traded at 1:80-85
Back then the market did determine the rate upto a time when it began being fixed zvayanga yoitwa izvi
Soon the RTGS will firm again trust + vakomana vaya vachamboti cheme mbichana remember the last time

@vax my bro,
