How About That Dollar?

Money doesn’t talk, it swears.  ~Bob Dylan, “It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)”

Maybe, but it doesn’t have the power it used to. Over the last few weeks we’ve seen uprisings in Egypt, Libya, Bahrain, Tunisia, Sudan and in various other primitive societies. Japan had an earthquake, a Tsunami and found themselves an atom away from a full blown nuclear meltdown. The dollar? Crickets. Actually it went down. Where is that flight to safety like the old days? Gone baby. Dollar ain’t got game anymore. More money has flocked to the sportsbook in Vegas for the NCAA than the mighty greenback.

Be ready.
