You and Foreign Money.
Tucker, James F.
Foreign currency units, exchange rates, the international payments process, and spending money abroad are discussed briefly in this booklet to help teachers explain the international economy. Thirty-two countries are listed with their respective currency units, some of which are illustrated. A chart shows the average yearly exchange rates between U.S. dollars and the currency units of selected nations during the 10-year period 1978-1987. The reason for changes in exchange rates are explained. A diagram illustrates the international payments process, and the use of travelers checks for spending money abroad is discussed. (JB)
