Haitian MONEY Talk - Increase the value of the GOURDE, Its immediate impact on the Haitian economy

A group of Haitian professors and businessmen sat on a round table recently discussing the most immediate way to positively impact the Haitian economy today. One of them said: "If the value of the Haitian currency (gourde) were to increase slightly compared to the US dollar, this would be an immediate relief to parents across the country."

KREYOL: Haiti Ekonomi :: Ki meyè fason pou diminye lavi chè nan peyi a? Dola US la ki pou bese (valè goud la ogmante) oswa plis lajan nan pòch ou??? Ann pale... Kisa ou panse de sa???

"Parents would would be able to buy more with the same amount of money," he said since the price of all goods sold in Haiti goes up and down according to the "taux du jour - Taux de Change," the exchange rate of the gourdes vs the US dollar

One businessman disagreed saying that injecting more money into the economy would be more immediate.

The professor disagreed replying that injecting more money into the Haitian economy would only make things worse.

More money will make goods and services more expensive, he said, because businessmen in Haiti have the bad habit of raising their prices once they know the poor has more money in hand.

"If the US Dollar goes down in value," he said, this would definitely reduce the cost of life (pri lavi a) across the country and people would spend more.

What do you think about that?

de 1804 a 1915 nou te konn ekspote yon paket bagay ak you paket lot peyi tout po nou yo te ouve e yo tap byen travay nou te desantralize.

Mézanmi!

Sou gouvernman François Duvalier a. Mwen sonjém té al nan yon makèt kay Dimon nan Pétion - ville, Ayiti: mwen bayo chanjé $20 dola US poumwen, yo té jis banmwen $21 dola Ayisyen.

Ex-prézidan Michel Martelly té diskité sou tout bagay sa yo déja ak pèp Ayisyen, an. Prézidan Jovel Moise sété ak menm zouti sa yo ké li té mennen kanpay li pou jistan li monté prézidan Dayiti; énèji solèy la, dlo a, kouran, traktè, plan pou bay manjé ect.

Zanmim yo Aisyen frem ak sem yo afe devalorize lajan lot peyi yo se yon bagay ke peyi kapitalis yo fe byen e yo fel toupatou espesyalman nan peyi nwa yo ki gen resous natirel lakay yo. Mesi pou moun ki te fe premye tab rond saa paske yo rekonet ke nou gen you gwo pwoblem.

le nou te konn ekspote pit vetive café kakao suk ak tout lot bagay nou te konn pwodwi yo yon dola Ameriken te egal a sink goud....
