Zimbabwe's current GDP is probably around $4.5 billion.China 'agrees huge Zimbabwe loan'
China has agreed to give Zimbabwe a loan of $950m (Ł573m) to help it revive its battered economy, Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai has said.
The government says it needs some $8bn to rebuild the country following years of collapse.
--> A $950-million loan to Zim amounts to 21% of their GDP.
--> An equivalent loan %-wise to the U.S. economy would be $3-trillion.
--> The "Big Bailout" from late last year in the USA was only $700-billion.
--> Zim says it "needs" $8-billion to "rebuild its economy" (as if this were 1946 Europe...); that amounts to 178% of its entire GDP.
--> An equivalent loan %-wise to the U.S. economy as Zim wants (the $8-billion) would come to $25-trillion, or 36% of the entire Gross World Product.
