An illegal money exchange is carried out in the back of a car. Zimbabwe's economy is in freefall, with inflation hitting 15,000 percent. The Reserve Bank, which has been unable to keep up with inflation, has set the official exchange rate as Z$30,000 to 1 USD. But no one changes money at banks. Instead, they go to illegal money exchangers such as this, who give anywhere between Z$1.3m and Z$2m to the US dollar.
