Aren't we forgetting the relation of strong weak currency, that is if a
currency is as expensive as the British pound, exports are at an all time low
as people "buying" from them have to pay an arm and a leg for a loaf of bred.
While, "worthless" currencies make everybody want to use their cheap labour,
and not to mention they all wanna go there and buy stuff because it's
cheap... lots of plastic stuff for a peanut.
