Thank you so much for the video! You should just come to class and teach instead of the guy who was explaining these things throughout the semester without really understanding shit himself.

I think if your planning a vacation, you could lose your mind worrying about exchange rates. Just use your credit card when you get there. Use banks for currency exchanges to save on added fees.

Why would the foreign country keep its good (in this case, Canada and its lumber) at the same price ($50,000 Canadian dollars) if its currency were depreciating and the good was worth more than 50,000 Canadian dollars in the reduced dollar value?  I recognize how that could be beneficial to the economy as a whole, but why would the individual producers want to sell their lumber for less than its worth (as U.S. citizens are plausibly willing to pay almost US$50,000 for it, not accounting for inflation or the appreciated currency, because that wouldn't make enough of a difference to make the lumber worth only US$32,000), or less than market equilibrium?

the only problem with your videos is that you speak too fast, some people may have a hard time understanding what you are trying to explain, and get confused. just my opinion though, anyway your videos are very helpful and informative :)

I think the single most important economic variable, which is widely, widely misunderstand in the world, is currency - is the exchange rate. People in the world argue that exchange rate matters, exchange rate's most important variable affecting, trade balance. Actually it is not, right ?

@FreeSoul790 central banks interest rate can affect both private bank and the Forex. like the OMO if the central banks would increase it's rates to incr. the demand for T-bond can, which decrease the money in an economy which increase its value in the FOREX. now the private banks only relay on corp. bond rate and corps. base their rates on CB's rates. i am not sure about it but i think its right and my explanation is not complete due to the limit of char. here hope i have helped even a little

Ignore this comment. This is just to prove to my ECON-1 teacher that I watch things she tells me to watch.

@Xenu That's a lot of questions!! Yes, because the securities market affects the money supply (see the video on Monetary policy), it affects both the currency value and the market interest rate. Most rates are market (i.e., supply and demand) driven, but some, like the discount rate in the US, are set directly by the Central Bank.
Xenu (7 years ago)
Is there a correlation between the amount of securities a government sells and the value of its currency? Who sets the rate of interest on securities? Is that also the Federal Reserve? Does the interest rate on securities have any effect on other interest rates?

@sirellyn I hope that's not the impression that I gave -- I had hoped it was clear that the equilibrium price of a currency is market-driven (i.e., demand AND supply)? In fact, when I talk about a country manipulating the value of its own currency, that definitely comes from the supply side . . .
sirellyn (8 years ago)
Whoa whoa. This video assumes the appreciation or depreciation of a currency is only due to it's demand, using that assumption it assumes that appreciating dollars make others buy less goods. MOST of the time, appreciation/depreciation with currency is from new money creation rate from the central bank. When this is the case (as it mostly is) a cheaper currency buys less of what it did before. There's actually more incentive for appreciation. Money itself gains value.
mjmfoodie (8 years ago)
You are exactly correct. So theoretically, overvalued or undervalued currencies will self-correct by that mechanism.
SomethingSoOriginal (8 years ago)
Very good video, one question. As the Canadian dollar depreciates and demand for Canadian goods increase from abroad, surely this increases demand for Canadian dollar leading to an appreciation in the Canadian dollar?
mjmfoodie (8 years ago)
Euro, or eurodollar? I'm guessing you mean the first, which is the currency used by (most) members of the European Union. The Eurodollar is something very different... In this video, all comparisons are bilateral, or only between two currencies, so the only way the euro would have an effect on say, the value of the US$ vs Can$, is if Canadians suddenly dump their holdings of US dollars because they want to hold Euros instead. Then the value of the US$ would fall relative to the Canadian dollar.
