Belarus Devalues Its Rouble by 36% Overnight

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on May 23, 2011 by highboldtage

Perhaps the conditions below sound familiar?

via BBC News:

“Belarus has cut the official value of its currency against the dollar by 36%.

Loss of competitiveness is only one reason for the deficit, which has risen steadily over the past five years.

The Belarus government directed banks to lend heavily to boost the economy in recent years.

And Russia has raised the price that Belarus must pay for oil and gas imports, from their previously heavily subsidised levels closer towards the international market price.”
