Bush's Big Boo-Boo

Forbes, Steve
January 2008
Forbes Asia;1/28/2008, Vol. 4 Issue 2, p9
The author criticizes the Bush administration for adopting a weak-dollar monetary policy. He contends that this policy is destructive to the U.S. economy and the economy of developing countries. A weak-currency policy has disastrous economic and political consequences, most immediately, to the country's tumultuous equity markets. The prices of oil and other commodities are surging primarily because of the weak dollar. U.S. President George W. Bush should promptly reverse his government's destructive course.
