    RTGS Dollar is a cumulative expression of the bond notes and coins which is basically theoretical and more accurately technical move which essentially avoids the crux of the matter on economic recovery through well programmed industrialization programs having a balanced domestic- regional and international focus. Its focus on exporters to the exclusion of other stakeholders in national – economy building makes it less prospective, its bound to have more costly stumbling blocs down the way, as other players react to it.Remember without a restored industry speculation around any Zimbabwe currency will remain rife, better consider the US$ [as it eliminates all speculation] while leading the nation on a robust industrialization program for both rural and urban communities, at a zero corruption tolerance principle.
