Subject: 1994 prices

I have just read the issue of NSPI which contains the first estimates of 1994
prices increases and am grateful for the information.  If prices do go down,
or even slow the rate of increase, we'll all be happy.  However, also this
morning I heard on the TV news that the yen today is trading at the lowest
rate ever recorded for $/yen exchange.  We subscribe to approximately
$40/50,000  worth of Japanese titles.  Does anyone else have a substantial
number of Japanese titles and, if so, have you figured out why this currency
is going in the opposite direction and how to factor this information into
the U.S./Europe figures which are more generally promulgated?
