    Our debt crisis is the most predictable train wreck in history, and we just keep putting more coal in the firebox.

    Think we're bad, look at Japan. I know they've basically been in the dumpster for 20 years but given their debt-to-GDP ratio I don't know why their currency remains so strong.

    That is puzzling. I have wondered the same for quite a while. All I can think of is that is because of the fact that they export so much. Still, a country that exports tends to like a lower value for their money as it makes their prices more competitive. :dunno:

    The high value of the Yen is a mixed blessing for me because I work for a large Japanese company. That means the labor I provide is considered "cheap" in Yen, But like most Japanese companies, our company is really hurting (loosing bazillions of dollars) so the high value Yen does impact international sales.
