Supermodel Gisele Bundchen only wants to be paid in Euros anything except the American dollar from now on:

Nov. 5 (Bloomberg) — Gisele Bundchen wants to remain the world’s richest model and is insisting that she be paid in almost any currency but the U.S. dollar.

Like billionaire investors Warren Buffett and Bill Gross, the Brazilian supermodel, who Forbes magazine says earns more than anyone in her industry, is at the top of a growing list of rich people who have concluded that the currency can only depreciate because Americans led by President George W. Bush are living beyond their means.

Leading libertarians and gold-standard geeks everywhere to wonder — has she read Ludwig von Mises and is she a fan of Ron Paul ?
