Amersterdam is Turning Down Dollars

News Flash: Amsterdam Doesn't Want Your Dollars

Small currency exchanges in Amsterdam are refusing to exchange dollars because they're worried the shrinking currency will be worth even less by the time they're able to sell it. Tourists looking to sell their dollars in exchange for local money have to resort to larger exchange counters while they're on vacation. While it may not be the most convenient reality, exchange rates are generally best at banks, anyway. Meanwhile, the euro has remained strong and has risen 18 percent against the dollar in the last year.

I guess I won't be going to Amsterdam for awhile BTW you can exchange your money at a AAA before you go over. When I went to London 4 years ago (its been so long :cry:)I exchanged money before hand just to have cash on hand and then mostly used a card. Using a card can be risky because the exchange rate can change by the time you get the bill making it more or less (not likely to happen lately though)

Where are the pundits who keep saying the weak dollar is "a good thing"?

Well, I don't blame them since the dollar is so weak against the Euro. They'll be losing more than what they're going to earn.

If they don't want my money then I won't give it to their economy. Fine with me!
