With today's announcement by the Fed, the US$ is going to crash. It's below 81 Yen, for instance.

2 I think a lot of it has already been factored in; the Australian dollar has been climbing steadily against the US dollar recently.

What will be interesting is whether QEII sparks inflation in the US.  There's been some recent discussion that deflationary trends are so strong at this point that the Fed could pump over a trillion dollars a year into the economy before it had any effect on inflation.

4 Obama saved U.S. space program, too. Mostly unwittingly, I'm afraid, and against or because of oppostion of Republican porksters like Shelby. But the results are in, and more are coming.

5 Sorry, Pete, but that's well down on my list of "things to worry about". If the US currency gets undermined, all hell breaks loose.
