Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe has openly mocked the US's economic woes, offering to give the country a coveted $100 Trillion Zimbabwean banknote. "This one banknote is bigger than the entire US stimulus package and we have it right here!" shouted Mugabe to supporters yesterday "But we won't give it to them Never!"
Modern Zimbabwe is aflood with money given in the last ten years by US banks in response to email offers relating to lucrative offers regarding dead princesses, gold dust and other such scams. Under the former US president George W. Bush, such scams went unregulated until the financial crash in September, when it was revealed that US banks had been tricked into sending almost all of their money to Zimbabwe with the promise of "huge rewards" and "commissions" that never materialised.
