We don’t need half measures

THE recent Monetary Policy statement by the RBZ governor, Gideon Gono refers. Perusing through the statement, I could not help but think that Gono is merely describing a new set of measures designed to bolster our misery.

What s

truck me as odd was his blatant and yet ironical diatribe, that because we are “living in extraordinary times”, therefore “extraordinary measures are needed”.

What a load of drivel! Gono, the game is not about survival, it is about getting the economic fundamentals right!

For how long shall we continue to live through these tepid, half-baked “measures?”

We do not want “measures”, we need a comprehensive economic plan, one that is realistic and attainable. You cannot continue disguising knee-jerk measures and call them policies.

Indeed, these are extraordinary times Gono. May I suggest that you take off all the zeros in our currency and while you at it, license the “mini central banks”.

At least they are putting their money where their mouths are (no pun intended).

It has become abundantly clear that these monetary statements are just a cheap ruse to pacify an increasingly restive populace.
