Concerns about the weak dollar are mounting. But even as the greenback sinks to new lows against the euro and other global currencies, some experts say this is not necessarily a bad thing for the U.S. economy.

Textbook economics suggest that a weaker dollar forces consumers to pay more for imported goods like toys made in China or a bottle of wine from France's Bordeaux region.
