World Economy

Mostly via Boingboing:

Amsterdam money changers won't buy US dollars because the currency is dropping so fast that they're scared they'll lose money.

Bangkok merchants now display prices in Euros, instead of dollars as they used to.

There's an amusing, informative, and short comedy sketch by an Australian duo, illustrating the sub-prime crash problem.

And, on youtube, a 7 minute documentary explaining what would happen if/when the US dollar crashes.

What's really scary is that the South African Rand is at a five year low against the dollar, which is plummeting against the Euro.
