I think Bangladesh Bank's recent move to circulate the Tk 1,000 note is not a good decision. How many people will be benefited from this decision is a matter of doubt. Only a few people, I guess.
How many people would have access to this facility when half the population are living below poverty line in our country? Does a Tk 1,000 note matter to these poor people? Rather, it would only increase inflation that is already high. Tk 1,000 note would only facilitate those limited number of people who have unlimited income. Bangladesh Bank should not make such a move that will only serve the interest of a few people.
I wonder why eminent economists of our country still have not said anything against it. I am expecting some criticism from them.
