Dollar price on the rise

Published: 09 Sep 2021, 02:00
Inflow of remittance has witnessed a downtrend over the past three months. Export earnings have dropped below the target. Besides, import cost started increasing.
As a result, demand for dollar rose and Bangladesh Bank started selling it. So, price of the US currency against taka began to rise.
Sources said Bangladesh Bank had long kept price at Tk 84.80 a dollar. But, dollar price started increasing on 5 August due to surge in demand. Dollar price now rose to Tk 85.20.
Though beneficiaries of wage earners’ income and exports are happy over the rise in dollar price but pressure grows on importers.

One crore is ten million. So ten lakh crores is ten million million Taka, or 10,000,000,000,000 (Ten Trillion) Taka. Or US$12 Billion almost, at current exchange rates.
He knows the above very well.
Dollar needs to go up a bit against Taka.

Will make our exports far more competitive.
Not a good idea as we are heavily dependent on imports for raw materials, to support manufacturing, and essential goods.

Any significant depreciation will trigger significant inflation.

The key is to maintain a stable exchange rate. To be fair to BB, they have done a good job over the last few decades in absorbing external shocks by regulating internal flow of forex.

No, he does not know and neither do I.

See, in Pakistan we do know(and use) what Lakh is and what crore is, but we do not know what 10,000 lakh crore is.

Because for us, 100 crore(1 billion) simply become 1 Arb/Arab (different spelling in Urdu which differentiates it from the Arab ethnicity lol) and afterwards comes Khrab.

So, here is the eample:
15 Lakh (I know)
10 crore ( I know)
85 crore (I know)
100 crore aka 1 Arb (I know)
1.5 Arb (I know)
1.5 Arb also 150 crore (I know, but I'd use it as 1.5 Arb instead of crore)
Afterward, 15 Arb, 30 Arb etc etc

What I don't understand is what 1000 lakh crore is.

I hope it helps.

I reckon it will keep rising until the next year… fearful of deflationary period comparable to the 1929s

What is your current trade deficit? Also, is your current account in deficit? If so, by how much?

This will answer your questions hopefully, they are projecting it to exceed 26 Billion next year.


Also see this, (I am no economist however, @Destranator bhai can you comment please?)
