Dead Prime Ministers on our notes
« on: December 08, 2014, 04:42:05 AM »
Should we put our dead Prime Ministers on our notes and coins like they do in the U.S?

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

NO! not at this point in TnT history. maybe in decades to come. First off how many dead PM's do we have? only three! also if we are going to put PM's on our notes then we should select the ones who have done the most for the country. Great leaders should be on a country currency! We have not had enough years established to choose 'great' PMs from a reasonable amount of past leaders.

I echo the sentiment that no deceased PMs.

However, some known and unknown heroes who have led our country would be a nice touch like:

Hasely, Uriah, Rienzi, Dr. Joseph Lennox Pawan
whey boy!

I would love to see Dr Eric Eustace Williams on the currency.

T&T new $50 note. :rotfl:  UGLY AND DISTRACTING. What happened to our organized format of having the coat of arms in the center of the front of the note and the central bank in the center of the back of note with national scenery or a national landmark to the right. This is like a big confusing cartoon. The white bird to the right is meant to what? Not the Humming bird  :rotfl:

Other than Eric, it doh have any PM deserving to be on we money at this point in time. In general, we should have nationals who have advanced our country's image in a very positive manner. It could be athletes, entertainers, educators, businessmen, freedom fighters etc.

Here is the updated version. Why have a hibiscus flower? The Red House or NAPA is not on any of our other notes so either one would have been a better choice than the Hibiscus flower. Still this looks better than the original one I posted earlier.

I think this government needs to demit office asap so we can stop the corrupt wastage of T&T taxpayers' money which is being siphoned off into government ministers and their friendsí pockets in kick-backs.

The reason why these unnecessary $50 notes are being introduced is because some government ministers needed to be paid, its all about over-inflated cost of doing things and getting your kick-backs to fill your pockets.
 
Why is it that the government hasn't declared the cost of printing these ugly curry coloured $50 notes and exactly how many have been unnecessarily printed? Ask yuhself that!
 
This government has done absolutely nothing since being in power to bring money into the country's treasury but has done everything possible to empty it as soon as possible while most of their 51 ministers have become millionaires overnight.
 
PS: I wish I could wave a magic wand and exile this whole current T&T government over to a jail in Guyana but we need the billions in wasted/stolen T&T taxpayers' money back first.

The notes being introduced are polymer bills and have been adopted internationally by countries such as Canada, Australia and New Zealand and are much more difficult to counterfeit. Eventually all bills will be polymer.

Why is it that the government hasn't declared the cost of printing these $50 notes and haven't stated exactly how many have been printed or that they plan to print? We need more accountability.

Also what was the tendering process for deciding on this artwork which I have friends who design flyers for me who could do a better job?

Its the ugliest currency note I have ever seen but then again it is reflective of this current racist government and how they operate.

I am not judging it on that my friend. I look at the policies of the government and am going by cases I know of personally where people I know unfairly lost their jobs or were discriminated against since this government came into power based on their race and assumed political persuasion even though some of them actually voted for the current government but now regret their gross mistake.
I also look at the immigration policy of this government and how illegal Africans from Guyana are being deported in much higher numbers than illegal Indians despite way more Indian Guyanese coming to T&T than African Guyanese, etc. etc. 
Conclusion is that even a blind man can see that the current T&T government is exercising racist policies and trying to keep it under the radar in the hope that it will give them a better chance of winning the next general elections despite their gross mismanagement and corruption in almost every ministry since coming into power.

The new ugly curry coloured $50 notes being produced with no accountability whatsoever is just another sign of how this government has been typically operating since coming into power.
I can't wait to see them demit office because if they get back into power it will be the end of T&T as we knew it as a multi-cultural harmonious nation where every creed and race could find an equal place and their fair share of the country's wealth, land and natural resources.

I voted "Yes". The reason is simple, acknowledgement of the contribution of the past leadership in this country. A way of recognizing the efforts or our predecessors achievements and remind us of this whenever we receive or spend a dollar bill - It is because of them we are able to do so, and it helps to preserve our rich history of the men and women who fought for our rights, freedom, independence, safety and privileges.
