I'll take Euros thank you. They're worth more than the U.S. dollar. Which by the way, is actually worth less than the Canadian dollar.

It's up and down. I still get charged more when I buy stuff in American dollars from my credit card company because they suck. I usually try to use paypal when I can. It goes at the exchange rate.

The American Dollar is in a lot of trouble right now. As far as I know £1=$1.9, which is a pretty poor state of affairs (unless you're a tourist, in which case now is the time to go to the US and shop 'til you drop).

Yep.

The banks took a huge hit on the subprime mortgage thing, oil hit $100 a barrel, a report came out about the state of U.S. manufacturing (needless to say, it wasn't pretty), etc.

It's looking more and more like we're heading into a bit or a recession, despite the President saying "all the economic indicators are good" :roll:

They said that before the Great Depression too.

On the other hand, there's a lot of people screaming "the sky is falling". I think it's the sort of thing we'll recover from fairly quickly. We were bound for a recession anyway. This country just had about 15 years of unprecedented growth. At some point that's gonna come back down to earth.

And the silver lining is that it's a great time to invest for the long term.

Joking aside, the smartest thing to do is diversify. Don't put all your money in the same thing. Spread it around. Eventually every sector goes through a boom. Right now it's energy. Eventually that will cool off and the next "big thing" will boom. If you spread your money around, you're more likely to catch a piece of the action.
