ABSTRACT
The article discusses the author's views about the U.S. economic conditions, specifically mention U.S. Treasury chief Henry M. Paulson's policies. Paulson repeatedly says he wants a strong U.S. dollar, yet he shrinks from bold engagement, says the author. Consequently, the country continues to have a weak dollar and the inflation that engenders, avers the author. As remedy, the Treasury and Federal Reserve should soak up the excess dollars, says the author.
