Read the Friday Morning Wrap-Up for 1/25/2013 and the Monday Morning Commentary for 1/28/2013

When most people hear the term “currency war,” they either dismiss it; or have not a clue what it means.  That’s a shame, as this deleterious process is the modus operandi of fiat currency regimes.  Moreover, now that – for the first time in HISTORY – all nations utilize fiat “money,” currency wars are as ubiquitous as government “can-kicking.”

The premise of “currency war” is simple.  In debasing one’s currency the fastest, governments seek to make investment and spending cheaper for foreigners; and thus, to increase manufacturing and consumer sales market share.

For example, when the Japanese government PRINTS MONEY to make the Yen more “competitive” against the dollar and Euro; it is simply saying it wants Toyotas to be cheaper than Fords or BMWs.  Hence, more corporate revenues, government tax receipts, and private jobs.

The fact that said “profits” have severely diminished purchasing power is immaterial to Japanese politicians – who simply want VOTES; and the Bank of Japan, which profits from the artificial “carry trade” generated by Yen devaluation…
