Money Matters is certainly its own subject so will list this subject as a separate help group.
How to use the local currency. Ex pats have a real challenge in figuring out the math when it comes to their currency and the Malagasy currency.
First off go to this site for up to date currency exchange.---http://www.banque-centrale.mg/
Today's date is 11/24/2016 so the USA $$$ is 3300 and the Euro is 3500 British Pound- 4100
other currencies listed as well.
The inflation rate has almost tripled since I got here some 15 years ago. However the IMF has looked into their crystal ball to proclaim that the Ariary will be stable in the first half of 2017.
Thank you for your thoughts and advise.
