Building Wealth?

Don’t try doing it in the States right now.
When we moved here, it seemed like a good gamble. We could make 20% more on our Canadian dollar, just by working in the States. Now it seems the tables have turned — the sad little CAN$ is now worth slightly more than the US$. Which means we’re now losing money, on top of the service changes, by sending our funds back home.

We’re seriously considering moving our savings to a British Pound account. Anyone have any thoughts/experience/advice on this?
