Dr. John Rodgers on “Is Devaluation in the cards?”

January 25, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Join The Nassau Institute at The University of The Bahamas Wednesday, January 25, 2017 for a lecture by John Rodgers  on ”Is devaluation in the cards“ in lecture hall at the Harry C. Moore Library at  of The University of The Bahamas starting at 6:30pm.


“Recently, in the newspapers there have been several articles concerning the possibility of  a devaluation of the Bahamian dollar. There appears to be contrasting views as to whether a  devaluation will occur,  and if so, when. This is a very important discussion because the word devaluation evokes an enormous amount of fear and concern in the minds of most people. The purpose of my talk is to explain exactly what a currency devaluation is, and how it might happen, so that people will have a better understanding of this somewhat misunderstood subject and be able to take the prerequisite steps to protect their assets.”

The event is free and open to the public. Donations welcome.

Thought to Ponder

The man of system, on the contrary, is apt to be very wise in his own conceit; and is often so enamoured with the supposed beauty of his own ideal plan of government, that he cannot suffer the smallest deviation from any part of it. He goes on to establish it completely and in all its parts, without any regard either to the great interests, or to the strong prejudices which may oppose it. He seems to imagine that he can arrange the different members of a great society with as much ease as the hand arranges the different pieces upon a chess-board. He does not consider that the pieces upon the chess-board have no other principle of motion besides that which the hand impresses upon them; but that, in the great chess-board of human society, every single piece has a principle of motion of its own, altogether different from that which the legislature might chuse to impress upon it. If those two principles coincide and act in the same direction, the game of human society will go on easily and harmoniously, and is very likely to be happy and successful. If they are opposite or different, the game will go on miserably, and the society must be at all times in the highest degree of disorder.Adam Smith
