Currency redesign policy: Effectively implemented, the currency redesign largely caused a fall in money supply. The central bank said that the redesign would help bring down inflation.

The relationship between inflation and forex: Inflation can affect exchange rates by influencing the supply and demand for a country's currency. When a country experiences high inflation, its goods and services become relatively more expensive compared to other countries with lower inflation rates. This can reduce the demand for the country's exports, causing a decrease in the demand for its currency.

Additionally, high inflation can erode the purchasing power of a country's currency, making it less attractive to foreign investors. This can lead to a decrease in the demand for the country's currency, which can cause its value to depreciate relative to other currencies.
