I am curious as to how these would help foster development, particularly in the case of Cameroon. Reply Jason June 16, 2017 - 10:05 pm Your reserve guarantees your trading with countries that are not using your currency. So nobreserves no trade bc the country from where you are buying is not using your currency Reply Jason June 16, 2017 - 10:06 pm I hope that’s a good explanation Reply Nkemish June 16, 2017 - 11:06 pm Simply put, yes I get it now. Thanks Jason. Reply Jason June 16, 2017 - 10:01 pm Prior to the 1995 devaluation cameroon was at zero while all other countries were near zero. From that I see that the health of the more populated countries is a better indicator of devaluation.then the case of guinea Bissau is sad.from what I see Central African reserves are in better health than west African franc countries reserves.
