Amtrak deflation

With the exception of the Northeast Corridor services, all Amtrak routes lose money. But the surprise, to me anyway, was how much some routes lose. The Sunset Limited, which runs from New Orleans to LA, loses $460/passenger!

Now, I'm a hug Amtrak fan and I ride the rails about twice a week between New York and Philly, but it really burns me that places where rail makes good economic sense like the Northeast are starved of funds to feed the romance of the rails in parts of the country where it makes no sense. I mean, surely people riding from New Orleans to LA could, er, pay a little more?

Declining Dollar

Long term, there is no where for the dollar to go but down, especially if countries like those of OPEC stop using dollars to price commodities like oil.
