Is there an ongoing conspiracy to devalue the American Dollar. It seems to me that during certain points in the year, the American dollar goes down in value for no apparent reason. This has occurred on more than one occasion over the past few years now. If yes, who are the people , and or governments responsible for this artificial devaluation of the Dollar. What purpose, other than making American exports more attractive for purchase, is there behind this devaluation. What are the long term effects of this artificial devaluation of the American Dollar.? I would appreciate any educated responses.
