You can bet on the € going down tomorrow and the next few days!
But when the $ crashes, we'll be in deep s**t.

Don't worry. You can, apparently, pay your medical bills in chickens, or eggs if you move to Arizona.

logos999: Will common Americans still be able to travel to Europe?
Yes. I'm going in Sept and I'm very common. We also buy Euro at the end of one trip to use to start the next.

norrisken, the house is on fire. Watch what happens this week. Eurozone is bailing out the banksters with 800 billion €.
Dollar can crash any day now. Sept is still far ahead. You think your € will still be worth something by then. Well, maybe still more than your dollars.

Markets open for 30min now. Still calm on the eastern front. US banksters still enjoying their weekend.

OK, so according to the various replies.
USD and US are history.
Greece, Portugal and spain are toast. The Euro will bring down the rest of the countries with welfare states and aging populations.
Britian while not in the Euro is still toast.
Germany is going to have to cover the rest of Europe.

Here in the states, as long as Walmart opens up in the morning the world will continue to exist.

Live, love and travel, folks. people have been predicting the apocalypse now for some time.

Tonight, they decided to "print" money to pay for everybodies (=every nations) debt, just like they do in the US.

Well it's not like it's real money. The days of responsibility are over. There's a saying, "We're headed for a train wreck". The problem is the train has already wrecked and no one in power wants to acknowledge it.
