Zimbabwe to Lead on Economic Progress, Says U.N. [LINK]

The chairmanship of the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development is set to be taken over by none other than Zimbabwe. The pariah nation's inflation rate of 2,200 percent is currently the world's highest; unemployment runs between 80 and 90 percent; food is in severely short supply; electricity runs only about 4 hours a day; and human rights abuses are rampant. The authoritarian regime of Belarus is also expected to win a seat on the commission.
