    Default Zimbabwe runs out of bread

    How would you fix this ?

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/zimbabwe/a...181086,00.html

    Before anybody gets concerned about the articles stark comparison of the performance of black farmers vs. white farmers, I'm pretty sure no race-baiting was intended here. The Guardian is a very liberal-leaning brit newspaper and the real problem isn't 'black' vs. 'white' farmers, it's 'unemployed friends of the governing party' vs 'people with generations of experience running farms'.

    I wish other more respected leaders in Africa would stop supporting Mugabe just because he has this 'look I really stuck it to the colonists' stance. He's hurting black people as much as he's hurting the white descendants of European colonists. I should also note that AIUI some of those white farmers aren't descended from people who took that land by force, they are people who arrived during the last few decades and paid for their land in open trade. They're all getting evicted regardless.

    Zimbabwe is also a textbook example of the effects of price ceilings.

    And, we see what happens when we have forced redistribution of means of production to a less efficient and knowledgeable proprietor.

    But, It's fair and equal right? Right?

    I asked my Shona friend (the tribe from Zimbabwe that makes those lovely statues) Fadzo about Mugabe. The pained look on her face said it all.

    Mugabe's economic policies are working great, everyone in Zimbabwe is a millionaire now. That's good right?

    Yes. Now all they need the right surveillance equipment and weaponry to catch the traitors who are stealing all the wheat.

    That we have starvation on this planet makes me sick to my stomach and brings out all the worst feelings in me.

    That kind of affluence means you never have to worry about running out of toilet paper.

    I almost feel sorry for the dumb bastard for being too stupid to understand why you can't get rich by just printing more money.

    He made it illegal to put up prices recently. That'll fucking show them.

    god damn, you'd think this guy might know something about economic policy and its ramifications. too bad he's too busy (doesn't care enough) to actually post worthwhile stuff.
