Three Ring Currency Circus: China, Japan and the US


So China’s gonna zig while Japan zags and the US, umm, lags.

As I documented in my earlier post (that I wrote at 4:30 in the morning while Sweet Pea was spitting up formula on my Ralph Lauren comforter), Japan is bent on weakening the Yen in an effort to recharge its export industry.  China, on the other hand, is beginning a tightening program to chill out the real estate speculators and curb inflation.

From the New York Times:

China’s central bank raised a key interest rate slightly on Thursday for the first time in nearly five months, in what economists interpreted as the beginning of a broader move to tighten monetary policy and forestall inflation.

As any economist will tell you, China is the world heavyweight champ when it comes to currency market manipulation intervention.  Through a process of issuing large amounts of renminbi to buy US dollars/ bonds, then issuing central bank bills to claw some of the excess renminbi back, China is able to keep their currency weak which stokes the competitiveness of its exports and preserves jobs.

My message here is a simple one:  We are watching the greatest three ring circus in experimental economics history.

In the left ring, Japan is in Yen debasement mode under the stewardship of their 6th Finance Minister in less than 2 years.  In the right ring, China is now attempting to cool off their wildly successful stimulus program with a tightening cycle.  And not to be left out, in center stage, Bearded Ben is trapped between a not-quite-so-successful monetary stimulus plan and a mongoloid recovery that has only triumphed thus far in the juicing up of commodities, stocks and junk bonds.

Central bankers as ringleader, metals and energy prices as the strong man, China as barely-tamed lion, Japanese stuffed in the clown car and the US taxpayer as the guy who cleans up after the elephants.

Ladies and gentlemen, please refrain from flash photography during the performance.
