What do troubles in the Euro-zone mean to U.S. investors? The answer is relatively simple. Growth rate expectations will likely be cut, dollar translation will have a negative impact on U.S. company profits, and dollar strength will make U.S. exports more expensive to Europeans. While there are near-term challenges for the European community, and the global growth story, there may be a silver lining in this for the United States, vis-à-vis the dollar and the U.S. recovery story.
