  1. Because the average Russian will one day go to a store and see the prices of foreign and Russian goods. And if he has already found out that the ruble exchange rate has changed, then he will not be surprised by price changes.

    And two currencies – to find out what will happen first: the collapse of the United States due to government debt, or the collapse of Europe due to tolerance 🙂

  2. Unfortunately, everything that is given in the media has its own purpose for mass management. My guess is that the dollar exchange rate is interrupted by other problems of the country. After all, everyone in the country knows how much the dollar and euro are worth, but they may not know that a neighbor has died on the floor below. Almost every conversation begins with the phrase: “Mikhalych, I heard that the dollar exchange rate has increased, and now bread prices will rise, ayayay.” At what, it does not matter-increased, decreased, remained the same rate. The main thing is to divert attention from the urgent.

    An analogy. At your leisure, you can conduct an analysis: the dependence of the number of new series/shows on problems in the country/society.

  3. In fact, filling the ether with technical information, such as currency rates, stock indices, creates only “informational noise” and distracts from thinking about something really important. Especially if we are talking about minor changes occurring somewhere in foreign markets, which may be interesting only for traders who trade “inside the day” and absorb any news at all in order to quickly form trading strategies (read, speculate on the news).

    This situation arises mainly due to the lack of analytical content in the media that would be useful for a truly mass audience. If you think about it, it's not the news about a price change of x% that creates added value, but ideas about what to do with it – sell, buy, move to another country, etc. However, such content is expensive and often not available to Russian media at all due to the insufficiently high level of expertise.

  4. For cheerfulness. An ordinary Russian, in my opinion, listens to the radio at home before going to work to find out the weather, or in the car listens to the broadcast music and news, if the receiver is turned on. Since the currency quotes have not been stable lately, it's nice to hear that the ruble has risen again after falling.
