Not so long ago, a decision was made in the country that had a ripple effect on every industry and every strata of society. Time will judge the efficiency of this move, and if it really will be able to abolish corruption (as it claims to).

Here it goes. Hope this keeps you entertained while you wait for your turn to withdraw cash!
