On the Belize.net message board there is a thread about possible devaluation of the Belizian $ soon. Is this just gossip?

Hardly gossip

Read further down the board to the topic "currency".

Additionally I was searching the Belize news and The Guardian Newspaper, online edition, which will not be available on the streets until Sunday has an article about the current monitary problem in Belize.

According to this article th Governor of the Central Bank, Mr. Keith Arnold and the Deputy Governor, Ms. Yvette Alvarez both stste that the public has "No Confidence in the Economy".

The article also states that as of December 2001 the Central Bank has a 3 day reserves of USD currency on hand and available.

Go to the top of this page to the BelizeNews.Com link and then go to Guardian.

If this was the situation at of December 2001
I wounder what it is now???

I don't know what is going to happen, but I would say that I've been traveling in and writing about Belize for about 12 years, and devaluation is a subject that has come up many times during that period.

Rumors about devaluation have come up time after time over the years.

So this is not the first time, though the current U.S. dollar shortage does seem to be the worst that I can recall.
