Why has the USD gone in the toilet? I mean we take a few days off for a holiday......and KAPOOTZ. OK if our dollars are weaker, we can buy less stuff from everyone else except China, right? Don't they have their currency artificially pegged to the USD? From the perspective of people with GBP's, and EUR's, wouldn't they love to exchange some money to buy some....American Real Estate, Corn, Oranges, California Wine maybe...etc. etc....??? Even though it looks like the USD is still in the toilet, don't worry you'll still be able to buy some Chinese Crap.
