And the end of every month was worse, when I had to value out the cost of all the foreign currency on hand. It was simply another part of production, like a bin of screws, and I hated the men who who waved the foreign currency flag like a real asset, to underwrite bank loans, for instance. Betting on currency is a fool's game.
