Bradley, Inc., considers importing its supplies from either Canada (denominated in CS) or Mexico (denominated in pesos) on a monthly basis. The quality of the goods obtained is the same from both sources. Once the firm completes the agreement with a supplier, it will be obligated to continue using that supplier for at least three years. Based on existing exchange rates, the dollar amount to be paid (including transportation costs) will be the same. The firm has no other exposure to exchange rate movements. Given that the firm prefers to have less exchange rate risk, which alternative is preferable? Explain.
