retirement package

it mentions $10M. I wonder if that's USD or "zimbabwean dollars"
From wiki,
In June 2015, the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe began to formally demonetise the Zimbabwean dollar, to officially value the fiat currency at zero, in order to complete a switch to the US dollar by the end of September 2015. The Zimbabwean government stated that it would credit 5 US dollars to domestic bank accounts, with balances of up to 175 quadrillion Zimbabwean dollars, and that it would exchange Zimbabwean dollars for US dollars at a rate of 1 USD to 35 quadrillion Zimbabwean dollars to accounts with balances above 175 quadrillion Zimbabwean dollars. This move was meant to stabilise the economy and establish a credible nominal anchor under low inflation conditions. The exercise brought closure to the outstanding issue on the Zimbabwe dollar, further confirming the government's position that the local unit will not return anytime soon. The Government has maintained that the return of the Zimbabwe dollar would only be considered when key economic fundamentals, such productivity in key sectors, have been achieved.
10M in zimbabwean dollars is worth less than 1 US penny

For some, this is harder to swallow than for others.

Zimbabwe to give white farmers 99-year leases, like black counterparts
Under Zimbabwe’s constitution all agricultural land belongs to the government.
so captain bob seized their land and the new guy is giving them 99 year leases on the land they used to own?

"Property is theft"?

Property, acting by exclusion and encroachment, while population was increasing, has been the life-principle and definitive cause of all revolutions. Religious wars, and wars of conquest, when they have stopped short of the extermination of races, have been only accidental disturbances, soon repaired by the mathematical progression of the life of nations. The downfall and death of societies are due to the power of accumulation possessed by property.

Many European countries did land redistribution. Austrian nobility lost all their handholdings in Czechoslovakia after WW1.
