Quoted from sataneatscheese:
Foreign exchange is nuts too. Euro is at parity with the dollar again. When I moved from Japan 10 years ago it was 75 yen to the dollar. As a general rule, looking around town things that cost about $1 cost 100 Yen so that was a huge hinderance to taking the family out. This morning it is 143 yen to the dollar. Stuff like that makes exporting hard and adds up.
US multinationals are going to take a huge currency hit. Never want the USD this strong.
