Is a Declining Dollar Good for Either the U.S. Economy or The Global Ecnomy?
This paper explains why a declining dollar is likely to prove deleterious to both the US economy and the Global economy. It provides statistics to demonstrate that despite a 25 percent drop in the dollar in 3 years, the US trade deficit has doubled in value. It explains why this doubling has occurred in terms of the absence of the Marshall- Lerner condition. Finally, the paper provides a new alternative policy perscription that will alleviate the US trade dficit hile promoting more rapid global economic growth for the entire global economy.
