Aussie dollar hits record high


According to news.com.au, the Australia dollar has cracked the US 0.90c barrier today.  It’s time to buy stuff from Amazon.com!

It’s certainly time to decide if you need to buy/import anything, take advantage of the excellent strength of our Aussie dollar.  Heck, it’s a good time to travel to the US if you’re so inclined, since you’ll get amazing value for your Australian coin.

On a personal note, it’ll be tough to fly those jokes about how our money is worth half.  Hopefully people will consider our strong economic standing when they go and vote (whenever an election is called).  Economies don’t naturally balance themselves, it takes good governance.

Off to the pub!
