ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on the recent value fluctuations of the United States dollar. a few weeks ago, the dollar bull was a rare animal. Until a few weeks ago, the dollar bull was a rare animal. Most currency watchers thought the dollar was in long-term decline, due to rising U.S. trade and budget deficits. The only question the majority seriously entertained was whether the decline could become a crash, if foreign financiers began to tire of supporting U.S. borrowing, and did so in a stampede. Yet since January the dollar has risen twelve percent against the euro, and seven percent against the yen. A growing number of dollar bears are turning bullish, and I'm one of them.
