From the UKGuardian:
Zimbabwe is knocking 10 zeros off its currency because its computers and ATMs cannot handle basic transactions in billions and trillions of dollars.
The revaluing - which turns Z$10bn into Z$1 - was announced by the central bank governor, Gideon Gono yesterday and will take effect tomorrow.
It comes a week after the issue of a Z$100bn note....
Zimbabwe has the world's highest inflation rate, which is officially running at 2.2m% but which independent economists say is closer to 12.5m%.
