The Chinese Yuan Revaluation:A Currency War against China?

China’s conspiracy theorists believe that the Yuan revaluation is a US strategy to constrain the Chinese economy, a neo-imperialist clandestine warfare against the rising China. They compare China to Japan in the early 1990s, as Japan was then forced by the US to revalue the yen, resulting in excessive asset speculation and the subsequent bubble burst that plunged Japan into a two-decade long recession. Professor Liang Ding will talk about what is behind the “currency dispute” between and within both countries.
