just fyi... the global collapse is likely past its bottom point. everything i
see is either bumping aong the bottom or well on its way up. in australia/asia
at any rate thats for sure. i don't think you're going to see any deepening in
the west (australia excluded - it's hooking into the asian supply line so it's
economy is more affected now the panic has gone, by supply and demand, and
china's demand - india's too is on the up).

no point panicing about deepenging problems.

the usa though is in some deep poo poo and likely will see its currency
devalue further. massive debt doesn't make the us economy look strong.
especially as investors are over the panic now and need a safe haven for their
money, it's a self-fulfilling prophecy that as the dollar goes down, moving
money to a currency not tied to the dollar thats on the rise, makes sense, thus
putting up the # of dollars being sold and unless someone picks up the slack
and buys the extra multi-billions of dollars as fast as they are sold, means
that the dollar will go down further due to investors trying to go to another
currency for safety. but then again, as the dollar drops, things will drift
back to on-shore as the usa simply becomes cheaper and thus helping create
jobs in making use produced goods + services cheaper. it'll reach equilibrium
at some point... but that won't be for a while.

(sorry. just had to point this out as the above didnt seem incredibly accurate
given current world economic circumstances) :)
