Title: Europe is on sale. Why the dollar-euro exchange rate is a win for Americans
This week I wanted to talk about the exchange rate and what it is currently looking like for the dollar and euro. Last week, inflation was one of the subtopics, and that correlates with why the exchange rate is doing so well now. For the first time in about 20 years, the dollar and the euro are worth almost the same. Much of this is due to the skyrocketing interest rates involved with inflation. Being in the military for over 10 years allowed me to see so many parts of the world, from multiple states to South Korea and all over Europe. Because of this opportunity, I had to pay attention to the exchange rate for the dollar almost everywhere I went, so this particular topic is interesting to me and something I have had plenty of experience with.
The Module 7 media part 8 and 9 discuss appreciation and depreciation. One means an increase in value while the other means a decrease. It also mentioned that when two currencies are being compared, the simple equation e = b/a can be utilized. If e increases, country a will increase with b decreasing. So, in terms of the dollar and euro, e = euro/dollar. So why is the exchange rate so close? The euro is depreciating due to the ongoing war in Russia, the leading supplier of oil and gas to Europe. Russia currently has a major natural-gas pipeline feeding into Germany, and there are concerns that they will cut off that energy supply. With that fear in sight, the euro dropped last month. On the other side of the pond, the dollar has increased because of two things: it is the dominant global currency and the soaring interest rates. Turns out, a potential recession is good for the dollar. “’Higher interest rates generally lead to a stronger currency’ says Jane Foley, the head of foreign exchange at Rabobank” (Gura, D. 2022). Investors seek out dollar denominated investments to earn a higher return, so the dollar starts to look a lot better when its severely inflated.
Thought Evoking Questions
According to Gary Klein from PsychologyToday (2019), Confirmation bias is the tendency to search for data that can confirm our beliefs instead of looking for data that might challenge those beliefs.Conclusions we draw from a piece of biased evidence are more likely to be false than those we draw from objective evidence. It is debatable whether confirmation bias is a shortcut that the brain uses when gathering and interpreting information. I work in the R&D department, where we are responsible for developing new products and carrying out cost savings initiatives. We collect a lot of data and present it to manufacturing executive teams. Under experimental conditions, decision-makers, mainly plant managers and longer tenure employees, tend to assign greater value to the evidence confirming their existing beliefs rather than evidence presented as new ones.Evaluating evidence takes time and energy, so our brain looks for shortcuts to make the process more efficient.Another example many of us have seen during the meetings is why confirmation bias extends to the groups. When interacting with others, we tend to adopt similar beliefs to fit into the group, better calling it a one-sided attempt to rationalize a particular point of view. We know confirmation bias is actual, exists, and possibly happens more frequently than we know; we should take steps to avoid it and be aware that it is a problem.References:Klein, G. 2019.
