good one De-Ker.

No one ever thought the Dollar would go down to this level when the EURO replaced the ECU.

They say the USA is in the start of a recession, so expect things to go worse and not better for the near future.

But, since the economy of the US is not in our own hands, nobody is supposed to worry more than what is duly and we can also laugh about this currency rollercoaster. 8)

I am not laughing, only because I work in the tourist industry in summer months, and we expect only 10% of the American tourists this year compared to last year.
The bad news about the weak dollar means less tourists who spend less money in Europe, and it is also bad for exports of goods to the United States from Europe.

Guess that varies from country to country. From Germany, for example, only 8 percent of the exports go to the US. So it really depends on the branch, and even specific business, whether they are affected by the weak dollar at all, and if yes, in which way.

Sure, "global" manufacturers that do not have any plants in the US or the dollar area will be worse off than those that do. Tourism may suffer too (well, where I am, we have hardly any US visitors), but the bigger problem is, in some European countries you have "mortgage bubbles" which are similar to what you have in the US. And of course, if European businesses now have a harder time getting credits due to banks taking fewer risks, that could be a problem ...
