Intelligence Squared brings Oxford-style debating to America -- one motion, one moderator, two informed and provocative panelists for the motion, and two against.
John Donvan of ABC News -- Nightline is the official moderator of Intelligence Squared debates. The debate series takes on the hot-button issues of the day to inform, enlighten and entertain.
This month's debate - Does America need a strong dollar?
The assumption is that having a "strong dollar” is always good for the economy, yielding low import prices, low inflation rates, and making the dollar attractive to foreign investors. But in a recession, could a weak dollar policy accelerate our recovery with low export prices that encourage foreign countries to buy more U.S. goods cheaply?
