Wha? Zimbabwe doesn't like competition in money printing?
At least the US-built printing press lasts a lot longer than a Chinese-built one!
Nothing shows restraint in printing quite like a panhandling billionaires in Zimbabwe.
Funny how people think Chinese politicians are any more competent and trustworthy than Bush or Obama.
Well, in China they execute folks who fuck up: or those folks know enough to execute themselves. In the US when BIG folks fuck up they get praised.
As far as who is the US Court Jester (POTUS), it doesn't fucking matter.
Praised - and bailed out.
Hank "Rocket Jump" Paulson
In China, they execute folks who get CAUGHT.
in the US, they get promoted and bonuses.
Yes, that is so true. Yet, MOST of Americans think the U.S. of A. has the Best system in the world. LOL
In China they execute people who cause TROUBLE for higher ups.
They do not CARE if you engage in fraud; the entire fucking NATION from top to bottom is all about fraud. They do not care if you get "caught" either. They ONLY care if you cause them to lose face. THEN you get executed. Or if you have something they want.
It speaks volumes about voter disenfranchisement actually.
Like the ballot boxes matter anymore. Sincerely, hanging chad.
POINT. MISSED. It doesn't MATTER if they're "more competent." What matters is who is still SOLVENT at the end of the day.
What matters is they HAVE A PLAN, and it's CLEARLY being executed, while we worry about ABORTIONS, gay rights, and who Lindsay Lohan is tonguing this week--they are POSITIONING themselves as a BETTER ALTERNATIVE TO OUR whole little fiat-based popsicle stand: and it's not based on stupid-assed BULLSHIT like skin tone or religion--it's based on RESOURCES--AND WHO CONTROLS THEM.
"Welcome to math class. We're doing NUMBERS up in heah, son."
Zimbabwe? Who cares what that country of whores does? They change with the wind.
Rhodesia was a successful country, but we just...can't...talk...about...that, can we?
RSA was similarly successful...seems that Africa isn't so inhospitable after all. Seems like it is mineral rich if you know what a fuckin mineral is useful for. Kinda hard to do that if your average IQ is 70, you lack the written word, mechanical devices, and the frickin wheel.
I was born in Nigeria. My Dad was in charge of agricultural produce marketing for the whole country for several years. Nigeria then was stable, prosperous, and had an exportable food surplus. Of course they kicked us out. Look at the friggin' place now.
The US press was manufactured in Taiwan.
I think you're confusing the press with the parts on NASA's space shuttle.
I just can't stop fucking laughing.
I apologize if someone's already posted this months back but, I just found it and feel like Tyler should make it viral.
just wrong, on numerous levels
I think I have PTSD from watching that.
LOL, that ther is fun-e.
meine eyes... da burnnnn
Meine augen sind gebrannt!
meine augen brennen
I liked this one better. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fzO_YhOYNQ
Yeah, I've noticed that the half-life of my gold seems to be around 36 minutes.
Bernanke is mortified. His hero no longer reveres in his worship.
I thought the US printing presses were made in Germany.
Heidelberg Mainstream 80, Bitchez!
The Democrat's Muslim is using the same Zimbabwe & Mugabe template to wipe out the USA. Democrat Jon Corzine is good buddies with the Muslim.
u give those negroes way too much credit for competence.
...And the "black' people didn't do a THING to stop white men from fucking themselves(and our society) in the ass with their mindless greed: don't forget to blame'em for THAT too.But what have you got in mind to insult the little yellow motherfuckers (who will soon own the planet) with? They already KNOW what color they are--and they DON'T CARE.
...they JUST KEEP STACKING. And taking more squares on the big board.
Math is cruel like that.
R U sure the US ones are not Made in Germany Heidelburg presses
Missed opportunity - should have gone with gold.
They had actually considered that a while back.

Too bad they never followed through on it.
saw Libya and decided against it?
Tru story bro.
[Hint: USA Drone C&C down & on the ground in the big S brigade - I posted a link (African national paper - remember, when you're not owned lock stock n barrel, and your regime can barely police the major capital, you get good journalism some times) outlining the plays... a while back. ZH didn't pick it up, 'cause no-one is investing down there. Regional bias n all]
There was inflation in the gold trade in Zimbabwe even after the Zim-dollar collapsed. Nothing much to buy in Zimbabwe with any currency.
China actually in the grip of hyperinflation, Gono is as useless as Barton Biggs.
Zim is a naturally wealthy country but everything has been stolen by horrible government.
wasn't a problem when white people were in charge.
Oops, did I just utter a hate fact again?
Right, as if the Chinese won't be forced into blatant monetization.
Fix it to Gold, or forget about it.
This is why i'm not so gun ho about shorting the euro. Our currency is just as screwed.
' “As long as we continue to use other people's currencies, where we do not have control over that currency, we are not going anywhere as a nation,” he said.'
Tell Greece that. Better yet, tell Merkel.
Does it really matter which paper you use? Single ply vs. two ply
3-ply works best for me.
It hasn't ended well for the last two countries (Libya & Syria) that sided against the Bank of International Settlement. NATO no fly zone over Zimb next year
Might as well, China owns Zimbabwe.
You have to admit though, it is a challenge to determine which financial system of the two is least immoral and corrupt.
the chinese won't be happy with the decsion. they wanted to blow their pile o dollars as fast as they, but zimbabwe wants to get paid in yuan instead
