It’s no secret that the U.S. dollar has been tanking versus other world currencies for a long while now, and there are few more fundamental ways to get that point across than this:

The dollar’s fall has been so drastic, it has seeped into the popular consciousness. In his last video, rapper Jay-Z cruised the streets of New York flashing not a stack of Benjamins, but a fistful of euros.

I’m smelling an upcoming remake of “Money Ain’t A Thang”! Although the lyrics in there refer to “spending hundreds”, they don’t explicitly say hundreds of what — greenbacks, eurocoin, rubles, whatever that day’s exchange rates bring a better yield to.
