#2369: The gourde and the "Haitian dollar"

From: C. Davis Fischer <davis23@teleport.com>

When exchange rates were fixed, it was 5 Haitian gourdes to the dollar so it
became know as the Haitian Dollar.  Now that they are no longer fixed, this
notion continues and makes excursions to the market very complicated.
I was there this summer and found myself endlessly confused between the
Haitian Dollar, the gourde and the American Dollar.
