The Nation’s Associate Editor, Sherie Holder-Olutayo takes a look at what’s trending today in Barbados. Readers today are talking about the new bank notes being released by the Central bank next month. Here are some of their comments. Angela J. Thompson Branch: Making new money? Will this give Barbadians more in their pockets? Kira Straughn: I don't care how the money looks.  I’m more interested in if the value is going to remain the same. Bajan Cougar: It will have the same basic look as the Canadian currency, however, you look at it the Barbadian dollar has basically been unoffically devalued (for a few years now) so what little we have has to be guarded safely. Melissa Broome: But on a serious level this is so stupid. Instead of wasting time they should be focusing on getting the economy up to par. Where are the new strategies and policies.....now that it has finally been let out of the bag that the economy is in the toilet and the hogwash that was being spewed out around the time of elections about a stable economy was just that hogwash.  These people should be working on trying to get Barbados where it should be...what sense is there to have new pretty money when hardly anybody will actually have it!!! Joy Waldron: What a waste, you have no money why not try to get some in the country before you print new? Waste waste of money or is it a case of trying to hide where the money really going?
