  1. When I was in college, Zimbabwe was mentioned in an economics class when we talked about hyperinflation. Apparently, their currency was defunct and they adopted the South African Rand. Also, my textbook had picture in it to show the currency had become so worthless, people were using it as toilet paper and bathrooms had reminders to not flush Zim dollars
