Доктор Гоно, директор Резервного Банка Зимбабве, ещё в прошлой весной (он тода не знал про триллиарды!) пророчески вещал из "Заявления о монетарной политике" (30 апреля 2008):
1.14 Equally also, our thrust has been founded on our unwavering belief that extraordinary circumstances must be confronted through extraordinary interventions
and not through halfbaked or even wholesale 16th century economic dogmas that have been long discarded in their founding countries.
1.15 As Monetary Authorities, we have been humbled and have taken heart in the realization that some leading Central Banks, including those in the USA and the UK, are now not just talking of, but also actually implementing flexible and pragmatic central bank support programmes where these are deemed necessary in their National interests.
1.16 That is precisely the path that we began over 4 years ago in pursuit of our own national interest and we have not wavered on that critical path despite the untold misunderstanding, vilification and demonization we have endured from across the political divide.
1.22 Here in Zimbabwe we had our near-bank failures a few years ago and we responded by providing the affected Banks with the Troubled Bank Fund (TBF) for which we were heavily criticized even by some multi-lateral institutions who today are silent when the Central Banks of UK and USA are going the same way and doing the same thing under very similar circumstances
1.24 Our economy is and has been in trouble for over ten years and our extraordinary interventions by whatever name have helped to keep the wheels of this economy moving
И все при бабле:

Такие колоритные иллюстрации к планам по quantitative easing жизнь подкидывает.
