Poor dollar. Keeps getting beaten to a pulp. And no one seems more excited than Treasury Secretary Mnuchin who declared a weak dollar to be “good for the US”. Of course central bankers have been using the currency destruction method for years, but now the baton has apparently been passed to the US Treasury.

Make The Dollar Great Again! 🙂
