Western Union offers fee-free online and mobile transfers from U.S. to Indian bank accounts. This combination of a low exchange rate markup and lack of fees results in some of the cheapest transfers compared with competitors, though delivery can take four to five business days. If you pay with a credit or debit card, there are higher fees and markups, but the money arrives within one business day. Delivery is also quick, even within minutes, if you send money to one of the 113,000 Western Union agent locations for cash pickup in India. The maximum sending amount varies depending on payment and delivery options but is capped at $9,750 per transfer.
I am a freelance financial journalist based in London and former FT staff writer covering stock exchanges and transaction services. In recent years I have written for a number of trade titles like Futures & Options World (FOW), magazines such as the FT’s Investors Chronicle and UK national newspapers like The Independent. Prior to this I worked as a ratings editor for Moody’s in London and New York, and subsequently became Fitch Ratings’ first comment writer across EMEA. My writing spans business topics across the trading lifecycle – front to back. During my career I have interviewed leading bankers, brokers and exchange officials in London, New York, Paris, Prague, Warsaw and Zurich. Presently I am also an Associate Analyst for BISS Research (www.bissresearch.com), the UK-based independent benchmarking firm. For my sins I support Arsenal FC and rugby club Saracens.
David’s tips: New World Market is the place to go if you want any selection of Russian grocery. Russians are known for having a sweet tooth, and there’s a million different versions of candy here. Plus, it has — in my opinion — the best deli counter in the whole city. Before Whole Foods was a thing, New World Market set the model for fancy prepared foods and boutique goods. The dairy aisle is epic, with 15 or 20 choices for sour cream alone. You can get caviar, dairy, beers, smoked meats, cheeses, and there is a dessert case with no less than 15 or 20 pies in there and constantly fresh-baked pastries coming out o the oven. It’s pretty magical.
The main problem with the CFA franc system stems from what is called “double anchoring,” where the currency is first anchored at the country level when the members are gathered into regional monetary unions, and then anchored again to the currency of an external source. Indeed, the anchoring of the CFA to the euro no longer has the same meaning, nor does it serve the same interests as it did when the system was established. Exports from the CFA zone to the euro area fell from 50 percent to 25 percent in the last 20 years in favor of exports to countries such as China, Nigeria, India, and Thailand. Thus, the benefits in terms of exchange rate stability with the euro area are ineffective because there is less trade between the two areas. Additionally, export earnings are generally reported in dollars, which the countries of the CFA zone must convert into euros. Generally, an appreciation of the euro against the dollar reduces the value in terms of exports earnings in the CFA member countries. Moreover, by choosing to peg the CFA franc to the euro, the central banks of the CFA area must follow the policies adopted by the European Central Bank in order to maintain the parity level between the two currencies. Thus the restrictive policy of the central banks of the CFA zone, decried by several economists, is mainly linked to the anchoring of the CFA franc. The strong appreciation of the euro in the 2000s was also detrimental to the economies of the franc zone. It led to the appreciation of real exchange rates in nearly all CFA zone countries and a decline in competitiveness. It is only because of the significant increase in the terms of trade, due to the rise in the price of commodities, that these countries have been able to recover and avoid further devaluation. However, the CFA member states have suffered from a structural current account deficit since the introduction of the euro.
Neither game is yet finished. Pryjmachuk still needs to add two countries to Jalopy (Bulgaria and Turkey) before the game reaches Alpha, while Rojola is hopeful My Summer Car will be completed this year, but it is otherwise opting for a “when it’s done” approach. Nevertheless, even at this stage both games offer a strikingly alternative view of how cars can be depicted in a game context. Through each of their road trips, My Summer Car’s mundane and yet madcap, Jalopy’s quietly pioneering, they reject the homogeneity of mainstream driving games, showing us cars not as disposable toys but indispensable tools, and exploring their significance within specific cultures. They demonstrate that when decoupled from the restrictive trailer of racing and winning, virtual vehicles can take us to extraordinary places.
