 I'm a bit puzzled as to what is going on in the US economy today. The stock market goes higher almost every day, but yet the dollar falls by an equal amount every day. Everyone on TV is saying what a great market environment this is, but what good is it making money if that money isn't worth anything?

I don't reside in the US, and since the beginning of 2006, my long-term investment accounts have returned 0% when you factor in the dollar's fall. Why does no one talk about this? Can it really be considered market growth if your dollar is falling by equal amounts? Feels like we're going nowhere, spinning our wheels…

Do your readers know of any books or historical situations where this has occurred? Some kind of reference point I can study and from which I can get some insight here? I am fed up of trading the US markets after so much time of $ devaluation.
