The article talks about the health of the U.S. dollar. According to Mark Farrington, global head of currency management at Principal Global Investors in London, England, the dollar's decline is cyclical, not structural, and predicts a dollar rally in 2008. It is stated that much of the dollar's distress has been at the hands of the euro and the pound. Farrington expects the dollar to strengthen against the euro soon and even more against the yen.
