You are the CFO of a U.S. firm whose wholly owned subsidiary in Mexico manufactures component parts for your U.S. assembly operations. The subsidiary has been financed by bank borrowings in the United States. One of your analysts told you that the Mexican peso is expected to depreciate by 30 percent against the dollar on the foreign exchange markets over the next year. What actions, if any, should you take?

Many Americans are demanding that companies bring their factories to the United States instead of outsourcing to other countries.

One recent company to do this was Aurora Flight Sciences who opened a $17 million dollar, 30,000 square foot facility in Columbus, Mississippi which created 250 jobs in that region of the country.

At the time, the public was unsure how to feel about watching a “circus” act that didn’t contain the giant roaring lion and the elephants as entertainment. For Laliberte and Ste-Croix the decision to exclude animals was more practical then creativity. By eliminating animals from their shows, the Cirque would save a fair amount of money because they required care and feeding along with a nice paycheck to their star handlers.

Since rubber and plastic are cheaper when imported from a foreign country such as Thailand, this would increase Blades’ net income and reduce their cost of goods sold. Since several of Blades competitors are already importing components from Thailand, importing would increase Blades’ competitiveness in the United States.

U.S. dollar must stop being held by foreign nations, which may decide to sell at any time and remain in the control the United States.
8) Exchange rates are determined by the most basic factors of supply and demand. The demand for any currency is influenced by many factors, such as rates of interest, growth of economics and inflation. An example of this is if there was greater demand for American goods then there would tend to be an appreciation (increase in value) of the dollar to buy said good. The significance of currency devaluations to the home country could be due to many reasons. One reason a country devalues its currency is due to boosting exports. On a world market, goods from
