The Aussie's sky-high, but...

...you still can't buy much for one.

Here's what confronted me at the airport the other day:

So if this crowd buy US$100 from me and sell it to you, they keep US$17.

I want to be a banker.

. Learn to love the higher dollar

. $US1.02 may be just the start

. Don't wish too hard. Ralph Norris on bank costs.

I recently bought something on Ebay and was offered a choice between paying for it using Paypal's system with the $OZ at about 93cents and a credit card. I decided to use my card and have ended up paying about the same as the US price plus a small fee. So, my card was the better choice.

credit cards have become the better choice for travelers, for price and safety
