A Photographic evidence of the gem of the nations CEYLON 1956-1968

Above exchange rates was the hallmark of the then non prejudicial provincial system.

Finally, as depicted below the railways as of 1956 were further evidential of this pluralist harmony.

    In response to the above comments.

    Ceylon Rupees; Annualised Appreciation / Depreciation over a period of 44 years (1968 to 2012)

  7. lingamAndy Says:

    HussainFahmy
    EG:UK GBP1 = SLR13.3333
    = SLR 206.787 Now
    is it 6.43% OR (206.787/13.333)x100= 1550.94% Depreciated .
    (for example if SLR26.6666 now than 200% depreciated )

  8. HussainFahmy Says:

    lingamAndy – My calculations are based on the compounding effect on the returns each year for the last 44 years. Straight line appreciation/depreciation is not a sound indicator for an economic analysis purposes. Example in 1968 the Rs 13.333, In 1969 it will be at the average 6.43% of Rs 13.3333+0.85733119=14.19063119. So in 1970 it will be 14.19063119+6.43% which is 0.912457586=15.10308878. until 2012.

    Hope this clarifies your query.

  9. Dham Says:

    COUNTRY CURRENCY 1968 2012 % CHANGE

    In that case it should be written properly

    COUNTRY – CURRNCY – YEARLY RATE OF DEPRICIATION AGAINST THE CURRENCY

    Writing “% change” is misleading to reader.
    Hope this is helpful to Fahmy Malli.
