It's Deja Vu All Over Again

In honor of the current exchange rates, a look back at an obviously premature conclusion from those fellas over in the former CCCP. A few years ago some Russians decided to poke fun at the value of the US dollar and the exchange rate between the buck and Euro, to the delight of many.

Hopefully the euro at least wined and dined the dollar first. Luckily for everyone siphoning those US dollars into their bank accounts then taking them overseas, the US did something to recapture their status as the economic Big Man On Campus and the richest, most powerful big, bad financial wolf in the world. So how many dollars does it take to equal one euro again?
