Currency Wars

Posted in: Economics, Stock Market, Thought of the Week

War is term that is thrown around a lot in our daily vocabulary. Most prevalent is the Iraq or Afghan war. But we also hear about the airlines having “fare wars” or McDonald’s and Burger King having the “Burger Wars”. War is about one side defeating the other.

In the world of Finance there are “Currency Wars” between countries. Countries try to
manipulate the “price” of their currency (Dollar, Yen, Euro) and in turn it makes their goods
cheaper to buy for foreigners. For example, if the Yen is cheap we can buy a lot more “Stuff”
from Japan for the same amount of Dollars.
