Europe ain’t crying about the Yuan
No-one shouts louder than American politicians over the value of China’s currency. But other countries may be ready to speak up too. Five G20 leaders this week called for a more “consistent” approach to exchange rates — with fingers implicitly pointing at China. The yuan is a matter of global concern. But widening the debate might not help the US cause.The euro zone is China’s largest trading partner and the yuan is pegged to the dollar, so euro companies should have more reasons to complain than their American competitors. One dollar, and thus one yuan, is worth quarter less in euros now than in November 2008. (via Group-think needed).
Europe ain’t complaining about the Yuan
Greece, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, are on the verge of a sovereign default. Eurozone is upto its gills in debt. The Euro is being called names. And they are not snivelling about the Yuan and China.
