Dollar exchange rate fell to a minimum with 2014. Oil has passed for $ 70

54
The exchange rate of the US dollar against a number of currencies fell to a minimum from the year 2014. We are talking about the fall of the US currency to six other currencies of foreign countries. These are the pound sterling, the Japanese yen, the Swiss franc, the Australian and Canadian dollars, as well as the euro.


At the same time, in the United States themselves, the fall in the value of the dollar was viewed with enthusiasm. The Ministry of Commerce noted that after the weakening of the course increases the competitiveness of American goods on the world market.

Earlier, Washington constantly reproached China for the fact that Beijing artificially undervalued the yuan exchange rate in order to promote Chinese goods on the markets of North America (and not only). China has each time stated that no artificial measures are being applied to contain the yuan. Now in Washington they say that the fall in the dollar is natural.

At the same time, the US dollar remains the most unsecured currency in the world, given the colossal debt of the United States — more than 20 trillion dollars.

Dollar exchange rate fell to a minimum with 2014. Oil has passed for $ 70


It should be noted that along with the fall of the dollar to a number of currencies, the transfer of the price of a barrel of Brent crude oil for the bar at $ 70 also showed itself.

This allowed to strengthen in relation to the dollar and the Russian ruble. However, after the strengthening of the ruble against the dollar still does not correspond to those indicators that were several years ago at a cost of a barrel of more than 70 dollars.

    As an exporter, I want to say that a low ruble exchange rate is very profitable laughing Also useful for import substitution. GDP realized this 4 years ago, and Trump only now. Therefore, the Wang, the ruble, in spite of any weakening of the dollar, will not strengthen much. Even up to 50 will not reach. Do not need laughing

      Everyone looks at their bell tower. I am an ordinary buyer. All of our import substitution is just beautiful words on TV. A part of the products is imported, our products - seeds, machinery, chemicals - all affect the price because of the dollar exchange rate. It’s worth recalling that a couple of years ago at a price of $ 60-70 per barrel, the ruble was 30 with a small one for a buck. hi

        Oil and dollars are getting more expensive or cheaper - there is no difference for the average consumer - IT DOESN’T DEPEND ON ANYTHING EVERYBODY GOES UP !!!!!

          That's for sure. With the "fallen" dollar exchange rate, as something in the USA cost $ 1, it continues to cost, but in Russia everything has risen in price again .... There is some kind of "magic" .... wink

          The perpetual motion machine of the rich was invented by robbing the population and weakening the country's economy in favor of the dictates of transnational corporations. And the Ministry of Economic Development vigorously reports on the development of the economy, because GDP is growing. But GDP is growing not due to an increase in gross domestic product, but due to higher prices for goods and services. If you count the gross domestic product for 2017. in 2014 prices, then the failure of the economy will become visible. And so inflation is the perpetual motion machine of GDP and the reason for awarding orders, medals, gold parachutes supporting the work of the perpetual motion machine of economists.

            In 2014, non-commodity exports were 160 billion, for 2017 - 247 billion so that the economy is growing, in terms of output of goods, the weaker the ruble, the more money supply in the country from exports.

        The real impact on the same agriculture should be looked at by price tags in stores. I have not noticed that since the collapse of oil prices, basic products have risen in price higher than the inflation rate. For the Russian economy, a lower ruble exchange rate is more beneficial. If the Central Bank were manageable, this course could still be crushed.

          Alex-a832, do you go to the store for groceries? Dairy - went up 2 times, and they are needed every day for both children and the elderly! Fruits are 2 times more expensive. These are products consumed in a larger volume than cereals and bread. For a familiar set of products, consumption doubled for the majority of the population.

        I ask everyone to pay attention !!! See how prices at gas stations in Russia are falling rapidly !!! Everything is getting cheaper !!! Right before our eyes !!!!
        I’m talking about this: While on official business abroad, our rich federation observed hundreds of times the price movement up and down depending on the dollar exchange rate .... Each time refueling a car at gas stations, it was sympathetic to the price moving up and down. Our law of a gas station somehow works strangely ... ONLY UP!

      It is beneficial when the state has an economic system, rather than a manual control system.
      At the moment, gasoline rises in price with expensive oil and with cheap oil, and from here all overhead costs are rising. Prices for imported products grew and prices for domestic products followed them.
      And so you can list endlessly

      As a layman, I suppose that over time, with a relatively constant exchange rate, price parity occurs (all prices are reduced to “pre-crisis” with a certain coefficient) and it turns out that the effect is not constant.
      On the other hand, constant movement to the side is also bad. The ideal option is to drive back and forth in the right range.

      I understand that adaptation would be harder. But in 2014, it was necessary to bring down the ruble to 90. At the moment, Russian goods would have wiped out everything in the post of Soviet space. And not only.

      Come on, pour your tales into your ears how wonderful it is to live with a weak ruble! The low ruble exchange rate is, first of all, the opportunity not to pay people a salary for the work done. Of course, it is beneficial for different exporters and capitalists to “exclude” wages from the cost of the product! And it will be Russia, the second India or China, with cheap crafts, and only for this competitive with normal products. But who cares?
      It is not necessary to understand economics and production. Not so do in the most developed countries. Only the way to modernize high-tech, high-tech industry. ... Only the unskillful and loafers dream of not paying people a salary, and going to paradise on the hump of ordinary people.
      Therefore, throw away your toxic thought of a weak ruble. You didn’t come up with it yourself! That is what the powerful people inspire us, those who are at the head of the economic bloc of modern Russia.

        Stas157, I hold your comment. When the ruble fell in 2014, employees of export-oriented enterprises began to hold back s / n-money. Export is beneficial only to owners of enterprises, but not to employees. Workers need a stable economy, just as the country as a whole needs production, demand and sales.

      at 13, I paid 100 in euros for an apartment. Now I receive payments already 115 in euros. And this is with a really understated ruble exchange rate. In a normal scenario, it should be 35-40. That is, in four years, utilities and monopolies doubled prices ...

He has a nest egg, and this currency is not in his hands. Therefore, the main thing for him is not the dollar exchange rate, but the prices in the store and the communal.

    Oil and dollars are getting more expensive or cheaper - there is no difference for the average consumer - IT DOESN’T DEPEND ON ANYTHING EVERYBODY GOES UP !!!!!

    Russia can not understand with a mind!

    Now there is a “soft collapse of the world economy” after the United States with the help of soap bubbles, dotcoms, derivatives tore out of it for life without any limits more than it could generate.
    All over the world inflation is marching, which is mitigated by the imperceptible substitution of quality products, materials, technologies for cheap ones. WHO reports on increasing food shortages. The deficit is extinguished in the same way.
    The greatest burden falls on countries that have fewer opportunities to protect their economies.
    Plus speculation of all stripes. Which should be tougher, IMHO.
