IT is said that the definition of insanity is doing exactly the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
In August 2006, RBZ governor, Gideon Gono (pictured) removed three zeros and issued a new currency in order to fight inflation. He pompously called this programme “Sunrise”. It didn’t work at all. Now in August 2008, Gono is removing 10 zeros and issuing a new currency. The effect on inflation will be absolutely nothing. The zeros are the result of inflation not the cause.
Dr Gono, the cause of inflation is bizarre policies. Removing all the zeros will not work. Just keep watching how worthless the re-called coins will be by this month-end.
