Farming is a very risky business especially for one who is not on the land because there is no guarantee that the land will be yours anyway even if you have a 99-year lease.

We are in a mess and in a normal situation one would expect that someone at the ministry of finance or the Reserve Bank would get fired for failing to do their job.

The depreciation will now slow down but at the same time the parallel market will become more active. When controls are put in place, the activity on the black market picks up. This is exactly what will happen.

I think the most important thing was obviously the decision to take over the land and basically destroy the main dynamo of the economy which is commercial agriculture.
