Inflation in Zimbabwe

In 2007 the government of Zimbabwe declared inflation illegal. Any who lifted prices of goods and services was exposed to arrest. It meant price freeze which, is routine, inefficient for an inflation stop. Many chiefs of the enterprises have been seized at change of prices of goods.

In December, 2008 the Central bank of Zimbabwe licensed approximately 1000 shops, allowing them to work with a foreign exchange. Citizens began to use more and more a foreign exchange in daily accounts, and local shops began to clean pricetags with dollars of Zimbabwe because the foreign exchange was necessary for import of the foreign goods for them. Many small firms and street dealers do it without licence reception.

In January, 2009 Minister of Finance Patrick Chinamasa has lifted a deadline on use only Zimbabwean dollars. To citizens have allowed to use US dollars, euro and the South African rand. Nevertheless, teachers and officers still get wages in Zimbabwean dollars. And though their salaries are estimated in billions, they make about 1 US dollar.
