Currency: The Haitian gourdes is being abused by the U.S. Dollar

There is no other way to put it... With over 90 Haitian gourdes for one U.S. dollar, this is abuse. But whose fault it is?

right before the fall of the Duvallier Regime in Haiti, the Haitian currency was 5 gourdes for one US dollar. 30+ years later, the US currency is almost twenty times more.

Sadly, Haitian authorities have nothing to say about this!
