No es suficiente con ver los tipos de cambio (1.45 dólares por euro) o leer acerca de la crisis hipotecaria.
La modelo Gisele Bündchen no acepta pagos en dólares porque el dólar está débil!
Gisele Bündchen is said to be keen to avoid the US currency because of uncertainty over its strength.
The Brazilian, thought to have earned about $30m in the year to June, prefers to be paid in euros, her sister and manager told the Bloomberg news agency.
However, Ms Bündchen, 27, declined to comment on her pay arrangements.
Last week the dollar hit long-term lows against the euro, the British pound and the Canadian dollar.
According to Brazil’s weekly magazine Veja, when Ms Bündchen signed a deal to represent Pantene hair products, she demanded that the brand owner, Procter & Gamble (P&G), paid her in euros.
P&G was reported as saying that it could not comment on details of the contract.
There are also reports that she will be paid in euros for a deal with Dolce & Gabanna to promote its The One fragrance.
“Contracts starting now are more attractive in euros because we don’t know what will happen to the dollar,” Patricia Bündchen told Bloomberg.
