Default Re: 1 U.S. dollar = 88.8 Japanese yen

I looked at the exchange rates yesterday and it did not look good. What really shocked me were the countries that were doing poorly compared to the dollar. Borrowing is bad enough but when you just start printing it is never good.

Anybody here ever use any alternative currency? We had some liberty dollars that were backed by precious metals but the government raided them a while back. Looks like uncle sam does not like competition from a sound money backed by something other than faith.
