Multiple Animal currencies may be putting The Park in danger of suffering a severe economic depression.
That is the warning contained in a special advisory to the Archons issued by the Central Bank of The Park.
In the advisory, which was issued this morning, Central Bank governor, Bravessa Contadora, strongly recommended that the Archons take swift action to amalgamate The Park’s Animal currencies “before the Ftoo becomes virtually worthless in the outside world.”
Speaking at a press conference following the advisory’s release, Contadora acknowledged the past controversy surrounding the issue, and said she wished to be sensitive and respectful to those who oppose a single currency.
“I realize that groups such as APIC (Association for the Preservation of Individual Currencies) have been fighting this for a long time and, to a large degree, they’ve been successful. But, to what end? If we are to preserve our trading position with the world outside The Park, we need a strong, amalgamated currency. I see no other option for The Park,” she said.
She went on to explain that trade in so many different currencies is “just too difficult to fathom for those who live in a one-species world” and that, in her opinion, The Park had no hope of increasing exports unless it adopted a simplified currency.
The Park’s 35 Archons have, thus far, remained silent on the issue. A statement is expected later in the day.
