*Ouch*

My dorm/apartment is full of students from all over the world so its pretty interesting to talk with everyone. The major topic of conversation as of late is of course, the economic crisis. I don’t go into the lounge very often but tonight I ate down there and this was on the white board. I guess it should put an end to any, “my country has it worse” kind of discussions. Poor Australia.

So these are most of the currencies represented in the building. The left column says “3 months ago,” and the right is today’s rates. These exchange rates are against the Japanese Yen. For Example: 3 months ago, one US$ would exchange for 120 Japanese Yen but today will exchange for 94.
