      The economy “rebounding” 7.4% means it’s still in the negative… way negative.  And inflation at 9% is a number that could be conjured only in a pipe dream… while smoking dope.  

      Yeah, hilarious… sort of.  Especially, when comparing previous years’ “projections” by this dimwit against the actuals.  A bush farmer has a better grasp of basic economic principles than this “educated”, highly paid numbskull.  The farmer tends and feeds the cow, and gains increases in the herd, milk to drink, beef to eat, and assets to trade… while Ncube proposes to eat the cow.  A mechanic protects his business by providing reliable repairs, meeting his promises, and charging a fair price.  He doesn’t get rich, but with his service he gains new and returning clients, invests in new tools, and feeds his family… Ncube would steal the car.
