The authors are correct in pointing out the weakness of any proposal that cliams that a currency board is appropriate for Zimbabwe. The political rigidities required under a currency board would only distract the country in a time when political restraint need to be placed elsewhere.

As if Zimbabweans should commend him for his sacrifice of partaking in a unity government
