¿Cui Bono?

Because we're all about the silver linings here.

April 27 (Bloomberg) -- Mexico’s peso sank to the lowest level in almost three weeks against the dollar on concern an outbreak of the deadly swine flu will deepen the country’s economic slump.

The peso depreciated as much as 3.5 percent, the steepest intraday slide since Nov. 5. It weakened 2.8 percent to 13.7153 per dollar at 7 a.m. in New York from 13.3405 on April 24, the biggest drop among 16 major currencies tracked by Bloomberg.

Look, if you could increase your net worth by 2.8% overnight just by taking a (as of this writing) 1-in-1.2 million chance of contracting a deadly virus, would you do it?
