Russia: Not Happy That; The Dollar is Melting!

Hello,Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I was drinking my morning cup of coffee & thinking again about the American Dollar. I have written several articles about the Demise of the Dollar! I have now just read that the Canadian Dollar is worth more than the American Dollar. I think that I read some where that the Australian Dollar is worth the same as an American Dollar.

Seems to me that the world currencies are adjusting to be more equal with each other.

This downfall of the Dollar is causing Russia to have inflation problems. To the Russians; “It’s clear that Washington is not going to do anything to solve the problem that it has created. As former U.S. Treasury Secretary Connally also famously said, “The dollar may be our currency, but it’s your problem.” Especially in an election season next year, the United States is focused on how to minimize recessionary risks — hence lower interest rates and a bigger fiscal deficit.”(click: read more)

“Again, Russia is not alone in this predicament. Late last week, discussions within the Gulf Cooperation Council ended without any action to break the peg to the dollar, which places those countries in an identical inflationary predicament as Russia. Asian countries face similar concerns.

So will Russia and its economic partners continue to play the victim in order to maintain the dollar as the monetary anchor of the international financial system? Perhaps the time has come for Moscow to help organize a new cartel. No, nothing to do with energy, but rather a “sound money” cartel among those countries that collectively wish to reassert monetary stability. Of course, as we all know, this is just wishful thinking.

The Horizon looks bad for the American Dollar! Looks like America has some recession years coming up. I remember the past well.

A survivor of six heart attacks and a brain tumor, a grumpy bear of a man, who has declared Russia as his new and wonderful home (&) Honestly, I have no idea how much to ask for, but is a gift of even $1 something you'd be able to consider, to help keep Windows to Russia online in a Tiny Russian Village?
