I've been watching the groanings of the last little while, and the US economy is fully tanking. But why does the value of the US dollar continually rise? I thought that when the Fed printed more greenbacks, that would devalue the US dollar, causing it to tank. The only way that I can think of of is that perhaps other countries are devaluing their own currency so as not to lose their exports to the USA? (I got the theory listening to a administrative program on Canadian tv) Any opinions?
