That was written by a lightweight.
So what Afghanistan had 4 different currencies. They could have just done a 1:1 exchange if that was the only reason. They lopped 3 zeros because there had been masive inflation and the exchnage rate had fallen to 50,000 to 1. They lopped 3 zeros and went to 50 to 1.
Russia got their inflation under control before lopping... just like Iraq has.
