    I just took a VoIP class with an instructor from Calgary. He gets paid in USD. He wasn't to thrilled with recent developments.

    in the medium run, it will probably be pretty bad. but, long-term, once the US market crashes and the world realizes that Canada still has tons of oil and lumber, and we get some Asian markets to buy into the country, everything will be right as rain!

    ...unless the US happens to "find" some WMD's in the oilsands....

    we all know how that would turn out [​IMG]

    The pound is not doing bad either, glad I am travelling to the US (although I kind of wish I had gone and paid for my flights in USD).

    Might even consider changing a chunk of cash for when it becomes a bit more sensible.

    Good points. And there's any number of possibilities that we could speculate on. IMO the most probable possibilities:

    A US economic crash will greatly affect every developed nation due to the amount of leverage built into global transactions. Look at how Asian and European overnight indices have followed the US markets recently. The ups and downs are almost lockstep. This is no accident.

    The powers that be will push harder for a North American Union including Canada, USA & Mexico, eventually with a single currency and larger sucker... Uh I mean tax base.

    When your average American can't get his cheap Wal-Mart goods and our imported underclass don't get their entitlement checks, there's going to be an awful lot of tension.

    You are an American, aren't you?
    "doing bad" and the quintessential and absolutely useless american "gone and" give you away.

    Edit: Our dollar's doing well against the United States Sheqel as well: 1AUD=0.86 USS.

    *points to the flag. While I am the offspring of various US types I grew up in Europe so I invite you to do whatever.
    I am not quite sure what point you are attempting to get across though. I am happy as it means spending money for my holiday is not going to be horrendous as it has been.
