5. Deputy Minister U Maw Htun Aung claims military coup causes inflation

On July 23, Deputy Minister U Maw Htun Aung provided the following assessment of inflation on his Facebook account:

“It is said that money is a belief created with an imagined story. Because people believe that there is value, the numbers written on paper have value and are used to purchase things. However, the paper money can’t be printed whenever it wants; there are rules to follow. Expenditure-finding using taxes, loans, money printing, Treasury bonds, and bills needs to be proportionate. Just like a blood transfusion, if the body receives more than the amount of blood that it can accept, it will know and respond. Similarly, if a country prints more money than it needs, the economic community will respond, and as a result, inflation will become endless, the cost of living will affect foreign trade, and difficulties will inevitably come. The source [of all these in Myanmar] is the military coup.”

Following the terrorist military council’s statement on July 23 that new 20,000 kyat banknotes would be issued, the value of Myanmar kyat has depreciated when exchanged for Thai baht.
