Haiti Money - 70 Haitian Gourdes for 1 U.S. Dollar
Once upon a time in Haiti, one US Dollar was worth no more than 5 Haitian gourdes; that's why the 5 gourdes bill was called 'one dollar'. Nowadays, in commercial banks in Haiti, the US dollar is around 70 gourdes whether you are buying or selling it...

Some people predict soon, you will need 100 gourdes for a US dollar...
These days a good Haitian job in Haiti paying 60,000 gourdes per month before taxes is worth nothing only because the value of the gourde is so bad.
What do you think about that?
