Millions, Billions, Trillions (Catherine Buckle)
Inflation over 230 million %. Twenty five zeroes removed from the currency in thirty months. A third of the population fleeing the country to survive. Bank notes in denominations of millions, billions and trillions. Empty shops, bartering for food, paying school fees with fuel coupons, car tyres and meat. Millions, Billions, Trillions is the second of two books documenting Zimbabwe's descent into darkness. Told in a collection of letters through the eyes of a Mum living in a small town in Zimbabwe, this book covers the years from 2005 to the Unity Government in February 2009.
