Why I would not own the Euro
The euro and everything else is gonna go down. Now the euro, of course, has serious problems. It's a fabulous idea and the world needs something to compete with the U.S. dollar. Unfortunately, the euro's been very badly executed, very badly constructed, that people come in with phony bookkeeping, or with no bookkeeping, and with very bad fundamentals. So the euro is gonna continue to go lower, I'm afraid. There'll be rallies along the way, of course. I mean nothing goes straight up and nothing goes straight down, but basically I would not own the euro.
