IMF says dollar 'overvalued'


Thank you once again, Dim Son, you fucking asshole.
Currency traders were given a green light to continue selling the US dollar on Wednesday, as the International Monetary Fund said the greenback “remains overvalued” and rejected claims the euro had risen too far.

Contradicting Rodrigo Rato, the outgoing IMF managing director, who last week said “right now the dollar is undervalued”, the fund’s staff conclude the dollar is still too high. The multilateral lender also forecast slower growth in 2008 at 4.75 per cent, compared with 5.2 per cent expected this year.

In case it isn't clear, this means you'll pay more for fuel, food, anything imported. Bush just might be capable of turning the US into a third world country before leaving office. You don't think so? He's remarkably adept at turning gold into shit very quickly.
