Summary of Making Sense of the Dollar
Exposing Dangerous Myths about Trade and Foreign Exchange
A contrarian, cantankerous, consummately well-informed checklist of currency myths and facts.
Marc Chandler is one of the most widely respected, prolific pundits on currency markets and foreign exchange. In this book for lay readers, he summarizes “dangerous myths” about currency markets and foreign exchange. The myths are dangerous because they can lead to the kinds of mistakes in public opinion that generate disastrous political and economic policymaking. getAbstract recommends this accessible book and finds that Chandler does an excellent job of summarizing and countering some of the most wrongheaded, naïve or confusing blunders, blinders and bewilderments that vex discourse about the dollar, the trade deficit and the economic strengths of nations.
In this summary, you will learn
- Which commonly held opinions about the dollar are dead wrong
- What the truth is about the dollar’s strength and international status
