Yesterday my family invited me downtown to buy a couple of T-shirts for me.

And guess what, everything for sale is shamelessly tagged in USD, everything.
Ice cream for 2$, socks for 0,50$, shoes, pizza, phone accessories...

It's like if you decided to go outside tomorrow and everything is for sale in Japanese Yens.

I thought I would be dead far before this would happen in my country.
Jeez.

I understand the pain. USD has also taken hold in my country.

Oh.

You meant a general "you", not me.

I dunno try telling them that you're a junior associate at Weismans' and Greib's and you're here to open a line of credit for possible economic development in the region.

My façade would not last much then.
It would easier just to tell them I wan to import stuff and go further onto national slavement.

But not my style... being rich is a bad anyways. It is frown upon here.

I believe it was Sese Seko who warned not to steal too much! You should only steal a little bit, and in a nice way.

That is unfortunate.
Was this one of the situations that the USD was a black market thing previously? Or was it just adopted in the country de facto recently?

Sese Seko?

Unfortunate, depending on the point of view.
Basically governemnt gave up on exchange control.

Now people price their stuff at their will and we all ar suscribed to a non official Telegram Group which send us the average USD price twice a day, six days a week.
And most of people now has their savings in USD and a few in Crypto.

The important thing is that I like my new T-shirts. Uni-color, black and other white.
