ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the slowdown of the U.S. economy. He states that the U.S. is poised to deepen what could be a sharp 2008 slowdown with a weak dollar, tax increases and protectionism, the opposite of the growth policies that are working abroad and have worked here in the past. He adds that as the weak-dollar trend embedded itself during the Federal Reserve's ultralow interest rate days in 2003-2005, corporate investment plans shifted abroad.
