The level of decline of a territory is inversely proportional to the number of businesses in that territory willing to sell foreign currency at or near market rates to the general public.

    So ‘more sales at market rates’ = ‘more decline’? False.

    It’s when the foreign currency is being hoarded and is practically unavailable to the general public that the really panic-inducing level of decline has set in.

    And I just don’t accept that the average tourist-central neighborhood in a place that attracts a lot of foreign visitors is necessarily in a greater state of decline than the equivalent tourist-central neighborhood that attracts primarily domestic visitors, or that a tourist-friendly city in a small country with a big wealthy neighbor is in a worse state than a tourist-friendly city within the big wealthy country itself.

    Hah, I added an extra negative, naturally. Meant to say that unavailabilty of foreign currency = decline. This may have been mangled by rage against various local non-currency-having businesses. All as usual in my world, that is.
