The numbers are showing there is money in the country. Are the people utilizing the money and supporting local business vs spending and saving it internationally?

$80k US/capita is a lot of money in circulation.

Those numbers are showing what the Oil companies are making and mostly exporting out of Guyana, from the last time I check, the nurses, teachers and public servants still believe that what they are being paid is not enough to keep up with the prices for a decent life in Guyana.

Well said. The government should be ashamed of the education fiasco. But oh hell when you’re corrupt there is no shame. You sleep like a baby. Just ask the learned doctor, Irfan Ali and Bharrat Jagdeo, or is it Dr. Jagdeo now toobig grin

Indeed...that is the truth
Lots of money flowing which causes inflation, thus people cannot afford stuff
