1 Euro = USD1,449

I went to the money changers today and the board there read something like that. Natually I thought that either they are quoting the rate of dollar after a 100 years of depreciation or the display is broken. So I went to the next shop which quoted I USD = 0,684 Euro.

However before this tempts you all to expliot the arbitrage opportunity by exchanging 1 euro coin for a 1400 USD and then change the USD bills for 684 euro each, you must realize that the french use “,” to denote decimal place and not like in USA/India where it is used to help count the number of digits in a large number.
