I still would like to understand how the British pound can be worth considerably more then the US dollar or Euro? Is the Great Britain economy that vibrant to have such a strong currency compared to the US or the US? I understand about exchange rates but don't understand how the British pound commands such a high valuation. Is Great Britains economy that far superior to Canada or Australia, both of which are 22-23 baht to their respective currencies. What MAKES the Great Britain currency worth 43 baht to the British pound?
