Is this cycle unusual in terms of both the dollar and resource weaknesses? Usually with a lower dollar we can export more of everything especially resources, but resources are also at the low point...

I guess it depends on what your point of reference is? Is it different from 2008; sure feels different. Is it different from 1982? Time will tell but I would guess that this is going to take several YEARS to work its way through the system. I wouldn't be surprised to see the dollar stay low (ie: under 0.80 USD) for another 10 years.
