Has the greenback really lost its preeminent place in the world? Not according to currency expert Marc Chandler, who explains why so many areâ€”wronglyâ€”pessimistic about both the dollar and the U.S. economy. Â Making Sense of the Dollar explores the many factorsâ€”trade deficits, the dollarâ€™s role in the world, globalization, capitalism, and moreâ€”that affect the dollar and the U.S. economy and lead to the inescapable conclusion that both are much stronger than many people suppose. Â Marc Chandler has been covering the global capital markets for twenty years as a foreign exchange strategist for several Wall Street firms. He is one of the most widely respected and quoted currency experts today.
