    With the recent Greek economic insolvency, I still prefer my money in American Dollars.

    With all the negative news about the U.S. dollars over the past few years, I feel the
    Euro is over valued and unstable. Let us be realistic, European unemployment is at 16%.
    American unemployment is just at 9%.

    The American dollar is still the currency of choice , when it comes to doing international business. And it appears that it will stay that way for long into the future.

    I still prefer the American dollar. I want to be paid in dollars , not Euros.!

    Yes I do , but I am saying all this hype about the Euro, and one of the Eurozone country Greece, is a economic basket case, whose economy is about to collaspe,
    along with five other eurozone countries they call the "PIGS",Portugal, Italy, Greece, Spain, and Ireland. And we hear people dumping on the U.S.Dollar all the time.?

    If he were paid, it should be in dollars.

    It isn't just Greece. Portugal and Spain are spinning out too.

    He makes some good points. Eurozone has some very real problems all over the place. Right now the big savior for the US dollar is that the only real alternative is doing a lot worse

    We keep reading that the Oil states are going to convert to Euros REAL SOON NOW.

    It just never seems to happen.
