fiscal fiasco

Never underestimate the influence I have in terms of international world trade and financial markets. Just look at the following graph of Australian/American exchange rates over the last few months.

I know you are thinking it has nothing to do with me going overseas - but I am here to tell you it is entirely BECAUSE I am going overseas. In fact EVERY time I travel overseas the dollar nosedives. It just sits quietly and waits for me to book an airfare and then says "right-oh, I'm going for a quick dip."

Not only on an internationally level, but locally too my travels impact on the economy. There is a certain cafe near here that has to lay off staff, and cut back severely on menu items while I am away.
