To All My American Readers: Thank You For Improving Your Economy

About a year ago I, posted a facetious request asking the Americans reading my blog to do something to improve their economy. Well, it took a year for the effects of that request to come to fruition, but I’m pleased to say that whatever you all did seems to have worked: today I converted $482 USD into Canadian funds and got $503.74 for it. That’s a 4.51% exchange rate in my favour – it’s not quite up to the 4.9% exchange rate the other way I was complaining about a year ago, but hey, what’s 0.39% between friends? Keep up the good work my American readers – let’s shoot for 10%! Papa needs a brand new bag…and by “new bag” I mean whatever gadget I happen to need next. Like an MSI Wind in black with a 6-cell battery

  • Hey Jason – I thought this too until someone pointed out to me that it’s simply the rest of the world in deeper trouble than America. 🙂

    It’s now $1.78 / £1, down from the $2.11 a few months ago.

  • David,
    Interesting! I honestly don’t follow much of the world’s economy, so I never really know what’s up. 😉

    Trust me, things are still in the crapper here, although it does make for some interesting buying opportunities. If I wanted a new car, there are some killer deals.
