The business environment in Zimbabwe is changing. Why should it matter to you? The world as we knew it, is upside down. Lehman, Euro Crisis, Ponzi-Schemes of global proportions. What had been perceived as secure, looks increasingly shaky – like Western sovereign bonds. So the independent mind should take a fresh look at investment frontiers were the prejudiced would run away screaming. And there is hardly a country as undervalued as Zimbabwe. The catalyst for change will be its industrious people and the elections of 2013. In this book you will learn about: - The past and present of Zimbabwe - The Zimbabwean hyperinflation, how it relates to what all central banks are doing now and how to protect yourself - Why Africa in general and Zimbabwe in particular offers ample opportunities for business uncorrelated to the West - Scenarios for the election outcomes – timing is key Caveat Emptor!
