    Moral of the story: buy stocks in companies with big overseas investments.

    How do you propose to do that?
    And keep in mind, the US is a net importer of jobs from overseas, not the other way around.

    And recall that exactly this kind of behavior was responsible for triggering the recent recession: low real interest rates led to booms in commodities and real estate which then tanked.

    And who can we thank for those low interest rates? Why the federal reserve. Just another reason to get rid of the fed.

    Mrs. BBD puts plenty of pressure on my dollars. No need for any other pressure from other sources.
