Unable to import decimal in Python 2.7 or Python 3.3

I am unable to

import decimal
in the terminal for Python 2.7 or 3.3.

Here are the errors I get:

or Python 2.7

How to I import decimal?

Answer

Is there numbers.py in current working directory?

That could be the reason of the problem, because that prevent import of standard library module numbers.
