The potential of Zimbabwe is being crushed by its own government. Under the oppressive reign of President Robert Mugabe, Zimbabweans have been subject to gross violations of property rights, including state-sponsored expropriation and vandalism, corrupt politicians, restrictive business regulations, and an abysmal monetary policy. Any one of these detriments alone would be bad enough, but all of them combined have kept the Zimbabwean people in poverty and have inhibited their country from undergoing much-needed development. Therefore, a major sociological problem in Zimbabwe is poor governance, and each factor aforementioned that holds it back from developing is a direct consequence of bad public policies.
