Inflation in Zimbabwe, 2nd Edition

Media reports emerging this week suggest "Inflation is likely to bring Zimbabwe’s economy to a standstill within six months with the possible paralysis of President Mugabe’s Government and civil unrest". I am unsure what this form of "paralysis" will take. Some might say Zimbabwe is already in this state of paralysis. Indeed the same article quotes The Zimbabwe Doctors for Human Rights as saying last week: “It can no longer be said that the health service is ‘near collapse’, It has collapsed.” Can it really get worse than this?

A previous edition of this blog provides references to the latest IMF academic work on the inflation situation in Zimbabwe.
