Semester At Sea

Posted By Malcolm A. Kline On March 12, 2010 @ 10:15 am In Faculty Lounge | No Comments

Students hankering for that first trip abroad who have been told ad nauseam that other countries hate America need to learn a more accurate and relevant lesson: Perhaps for the first time in American history, natives of other lands hate American currency.

“As for the dollar, I can bear personal testimony to the decline of the dollar’s prestige,” columnist Dennis Prager [1] recently wrote. “I am writing this column in Morocco.”

“In Casablanca, my wife and I and another couple hired a Moroccan driver for the day. And when it came time to pay, the man refused to accept dollars; he wanted to be paid in either Euros or Moroccan dirhams.”

“Yes, dirhams rather than dollars.”

Malcolm A. Kline is the Executive Director of Accuracy in Academia [2].
