Ouch! Empty Ouch!

Post by Sideways Tue May 07, 2013 1:37 pm

For many years we have used B of A no-fee ATM cards for pesos. But the exchange rate looks like it's about to head south of 12:1.

I'm afraid this is the new normal for awhile. While I was here when it was as low as 10:1, we've been spoiled by much higher pesos to USD for the past 5 or so years.

Anyone else feeling the pinch?

nope. it was 6.42 +/- to a cdn $ in 2000 when we made the decision to move here. a pack of marlboros was 12 pesos[now 43] and a pack of smokes in alberta was around 7 bucks-now about 14 bucks.
perspective.

So using smokes as the example, if the CDN money has doubled it's worth (now approx. 12 to 1) and inflation here has almost quadripled (from 12p to 43p) then the difference today is only double just like that pack of smokes in Alberta, so it is all relative. No?

(2000) smokes - $1.87 CDN
(2013) smokes - $3.58 CDN
