Quotation of the Day

From this IMF paper: (HT: I forget.)
Zimbabwe’s flow of realized central bank quasi-fiscal losses are estimated to have amounted to 75 percent of GDP in 2006.

That is, uh, quite a substantial amount of money being printed.

EDIT: Dani Rodrik has a typically excellent post on export regulations.
