Weak Dollar Policy

The policy under which the U.S. government seeks to maintain a U.S. dollar that is worth less than other currencies. This makes U.S. products less expensive in other countries, which encourages exports. The U.S. pursues a weak dollar policy primarily by buying foreign debt. It carries the risk of leading to unsustainable debt and/or inflation.
