Exchange Rates Fluctuate!

In my New Atlanticist piece “Euro Drops Ever So Slightly After Bailout Rejection,” I give a YahooNews headline writer a hard time for turning an insignificant change in the dollar-euro exchange rate into a commentary on Europe’s response to the financial crisis.

Hilarity (or, at least, some historical perspective) ensues.
