Now that US dollars are going the same way as banana republic pesos my trips to the USA are cheaper, shopping online from american stores is cheaper, american imports are cheaper, etc.

So let the dollar drop a bit more!

It also helps a little against the ridiculously high price of oil, but not that much, because the plunging dollar is one of the reasons why oil got more expensive to begin with. It's about time to end the monopoly of US dollars in the global oil trade.

Finally, a falling dollar means less american tourists. Now that the number of asian tourists is skyrocketing, less americans is a good thing to keep my city liveable. Amsterdam attracts way more tourists than it can handle.
