At the casinos; do they give you a preferencial rate; as the pharmacies?
One time I changed a $50 at a pharm; they gave me 2.70 - when the best rate was 2.63!
Is this to encourage you to spend more; I like the idea - but the max. amount changed is $50 - too bad!!!
I feel the US will be OK; they are starting to take the deficit seriously now.
The entitlements have to change; when a person can live better on WELFARE than working - there is no incentive to be a contributor to the economy (ask Chi Chi about the situation in Belgium & Europe).
Don't EVER bet against the US; it has its' share of problems - but ALWAYS bounces back & will continue to do!
I am taking bets on the economy; please email me with your thoughts & we will wager...
PS - why is the US dollar so universally accepted & demanded; vs. any other currency?
