  1. Doc,

    Interestingly, at our own HarareCentral Prison(and countrywide), the major currency of exchange is actually cigarets . And yes even non smokers keep cigarets to even buy food from other inmates . They tried to ban this practice but they could not after they discovered that even Prison Officials also traded in the same currency ( cigarets).

    Thought I would share this after reading today’s blog.

    Best regards and stay blessed,

    1. The major money creators are commercial banks. Since money is created when a loan is granted (or a credit is extended to a client). As a matter of fact more money that circulates in the monetary system is created by commercial banks than the central bank.
