The author reflects on the weakening of the U.S. dollar. He states that the interest rate reductions by the U.S. Federal Reserve have had little restorative effect and did not help unhinge the dollar. He adds that the wholesale desertion of the dollar is not likely, but the need to reorder pricing and currency relationships is going to jar economies in Asia-Pacific and around the globe.
