Translations of German Newspapers Articles about Iraq and the US Dollar

Watching America describes itself as "America's Public Intelligence Agency" and translates what international publications write about the US politics. Translating articles in their entirety is a good service, because context is often important.

• "Fear is a Dangerous Counselor": Watching America translation of a Die Welt article about the The Iraq Study Group Report: "If Washington now gives the impression that it's trying to sneak out of a situation that it created, then the prospect of an Iraqi-style Dayton agreement will be nil.”

• "Our New Friends of ... the 'Axis of Evil'": Watching America translation of a Financial Times Deutschland article: "Hopes for pacifying Iraq with the cooperation of Iran and Syria are hardly promising."

• "The U.S. Dollar: 'A Horror Story'": Watching America translation of a Financial Times Deutschland article: "The deterioration of the U.S. currency is part of a tectonic realignment that we will have to confront for years to come."

Don S on :

"The deterioration of the U.S. currency is part of a tectonic realignment that we will have to confront for years to come." A glittering generality of the kind which 'serious' journalists are all too fond of. 'Years' can mean a period of anything from 13 months to 2 centuries. I'll observe that 'tectonic realignment' and other such phrases are the most tired overused cant which exist in the field of economics. Economists are fond of 'forecasting' recessions which never actually occur & 'currency analysts' behave similarly in their sphere. Note also that the 'weakness' or 'strength' of a currency is a bit of an oxymoron because a 'strong' currency often leads to a weak export sector and vice-versa.
