Get ready for $0 at the BDL.

Bread, fuel and Medication/hospitalization prices are going to go off the hook. Prices are going to rise 4.5 times at the least, that's if USD black market price stays at 7,000. I think it would surpass the 15,000 easily because of the huge increased in demand for the $ in order to purchase huge amounts of fuel, wheat and meds.

Maybe people will start cycling and there will be less pollution.
Also if bread becomes expensive Qu'ils mangent de la brioche, maybe that will bring the Guillotine into the picture.

    This also means no more fuel for electricity and home heating. People would die cause they cannot afford to buy their medicines and people will not get hospital care (think dialysis, heart attacks, chemo therapy etc...)

    People will die because our government decided to use our dollars to lower the price of coffee sweeteners, nuts and maids

    yeah well in which 3rd (maybe more like 10th in our case) world country do people get subsidy for hospital care. electricity and home heating paid by the government do you see how brazilians live in favelas or how indians heat food or what type of dwelling they have in most african countries.
    People had daman for years, in the US they don't even have that.

    Daman is not a service that the government gives FOC. Workers all over the country pay part of their salaries towards “daman”. The problem is that the gov took (stole) a large part of the “daman” “CNSS” fund.

    Source of Funds: Government: About 25% of the cost of benefits.

    So Government pays
    They are not paying for shit. They have stolen $2B as far as we know or as far as what has been revealed to us. There are backlogs of payments in the billions as well, to hospitals, doctors etc...

    Let them remove the claimed 25% participation and return the stolen money and everything will run 1000 times better.

    I am not talking about stealing or not, they are stealing everything and we know that. What I am saying is that the Lebanese do not deserve Daman in theory. it only happens in 1st world country.

    They deserve what they pay for. If they pay part of their salary to the CNSS, they deserve coverage. Otherwise, stop the CNSS (which is compulsory! ) and stop taking part of their salary (and the other part paid by their employer). They can then buy with that money private insurance.

    "LBC": توجه من قبل مصرف لبنان للمضي بموضوع البطاقات التموينية


    أفادت مصادر لقناة الـ "LBC" إلى أن "هناك توجه من قبل مصرف لبنان للمضي بموضوع البطاقات التموينية التي تعتبر بمثابة بطاقة ايداع ستوزعها المصارف لكل اللبنانيين، واللبنانيين فقط، وتتضمن قيمة المواد الاساسية التي يحتاجها المواطن من دواء وقمح فضلا عن المواد الاساسية التي يحتاجها المواطن كل شهر".
    ولفتت المصادر إلى أن "مصرف لبنان سيقدم هذه الخبرات، لكن قرار التنفيذ يحتاج قرار من الحكومة، على ان يدعم المصرف هذه البطاقة في المرحلة الأولى، وبعدها يصبح الدعم على عاتق الحكومة".
