How about G paying us euro publishers in euros without using the dollar as an intermediate conversion unit?
It is making it very expensive for Britons to travel abroad. I believe it will really damage our holiday industry.
Regarding adsense, I hope the USD stabilizes and my income with it. Lots of my advertisers are domestic so as long as there are no sharp intermittent drops my pain will be limited.
The Euro's rise is going to price the whole of Euroland out of existence over the next year or so. A BMW / Merc will be totally unaffordable anywhere outside Euroland; laderhousen will only be saleable in Germany, and posh, pretentious Champagne / smelly French cheeses will disappear.
Every cloud has a silver lining.
If it is really a problem, do what other big international businesses do and hedge your bet, invest in your currency or short sell american currency, so that if your revenues are cut because your currency is going up, at least you're making a profit somewhere else.
USD..down 25 %
GBP..down 60 %
These figures will most probably turn our company from black to red. It really hurts to see your Yen decreasing in numbers and it really is getting scary now for alot of us here in Japan.
