..something's not right..


This dollars plunge..
tis a bit unnerving to me..
The Canadian more than the American?
...never thought I’d see

It’s almost as if, one day you turn on the dial
only to find out
the latest figures r out
..and the kilometer is suddenly more than the mile..

Now that'd be cool. So like the travelling time to E"Y would increase by like 3/5...

It is?! Good grief, I really am living in a cave. You should post about current events more often, then maybe I'd know what goes on in the world...

it is a mixed bag--good for our economy (we have tons of canadiens buying up everything in the malls here (even discarding old clothes in dumpsters) and i just read that europeans are coming to the big apple in mass as well--making two trips instead of one, or being able to purchase a pair of shoes for $600, verses $800 and change in Europe. Crazy, right? to be spending such funds so irresponsibly in light of the world's mounting ails!
but, still, americans need to buy less and sell more--for a time. then, alright, let our money bills grow!!!

I Think the scariest part for us americans, is that as a result of this plunge of the dollar we have to learn to curb our spending....A weaker dollar makes vacations overseas more expensive for U.S. travelers and can make foreign companies choose between raising prices or cutting profitability on goods sold in the U.S. But it helps boost U.S. corporations profits by making their exports more competitive abroad, and makes U.S. vacations more affordable for Europeans.

I <3 it as I go to NYC a lot. A low dollar means there's high domestic demand as well as foreign demand for products, which per se isn't a bad thing; the flipside of the medal though is that imported goods from Europe that are essential to the economy, e.g. industrial machinery from Germany as the leading developer and producer in that field, are getting too expensive, and domestic production might suffer from that to a degree of high unemployment, which in turn would decrease the domestic demand for goods and therefore might strengthen the dollar again. But as long as I keep travelling there, please keep it cheap :)

Oh come on. "Financial things" are part of everyone's life and it's part of social responsibility. Someone's world consists of buying shoes for $600 or $800, and another one's world needs $5 to go to school for a whole year. This is grossly negligent and out of balance.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!!
