Abstract:The main argument in this article is that, despite the grim political and economic outlook that left negative social ramifications during the decade of crisis in Zimbabwe (2000-2008), it should be borne in mind that there are some dealers who benefited materially from Zimbabwe's corrupt and criminal 'black market'. The paper also contends that Bourdieu's concepts of the habitus and the field are enlightening in explaining the modus operandi of some of the dealers, notably during the peak of the crisis in 2008.
