Should the government allow the peso to fall even farther to stimulate exports? Why or why not?

In addition, the fact that the US government has recently open doors to Chinese steel companies to operate businesses in the US, this may start to influence the economic environment of the US steel industry as well.

The main argument made in the article, International Bullion Flows and the Chinese Economy circa 1530-1650 by William Atwell, is that during the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, an influx in the demand of silver and foreign demand of Chinese goods led to the fall of the Ming dynasty. Chinese merchants traded for large quantities of silver. It started off as simple supply and demand. However, as the supply stopped rising, the demand kept rising causing inflation in China. By looking at charts that show the relationship between the year and the amount of silver imported, I will be able to support my belief that major factors to the fall of the Ming dynasty was the collapse of foreign trade and the over-dependency on silver as monetary funding.
By 1992, China succeeded in attracting $11.2 billion. (China: Building Capitalism with Social Characteristics) As a result of the agricultural and industrial reforms adopted in the late 70s, by the end of the 80s, China’s economy was booming. However, the high growth created high inflation which approached 20% by the 1988. To prevent inflation from spiraling out of control, the government froze credit from state banks, tightened monetary policy, controlled imports and exports, raised interest rates, and devaluated the currency. These measures were tough on the population and sparked a massive protest in 1989 at Tianamen Square which was controlled militarily.
The wealth that the Citic Pacific shareholders lost would be the declined stock price multiplied by total number of shares, that is HK$8 X 2,194,148,000 = HK$17,553,184,000 (US$2,250,408,205). It is around HK$17.5 billion (US$2.2 billion). 3. My Feeling Towards the Change in Stock Price I am not surprised by the market reaction as measured by the stock price change because the misguided bet of Citic Pacific caused a big blow to China’s brokerage firms and swayed investors’ confidence.
There was a strong need for additional money balances. Farm prices were declining drastically due to the decline in the price of farm products. The Populists were responding to the needs of the farmers, who were mostly in debt. They sought a solution through the unlimited coinage of silver to inflate money supply to ease the debts. 3.
Globalisation of trade and investment has increased the likeliness of a financial crisis in one country spreading to many different countries around the world. This is because countries around the world have become more integrated and interdependent in the modern global economy. Greece is one of many countries that were hit hard by the financial crisis of 2008, which has negatively affected the Greek economy and many of the population of Greece. This essay will define and explore the economic, political and socioeconomic consequences that Greece faced from the subsequent recession, and access the effectiveness of the response and intervention from the Greek government. Before the financial crisis of 2008, Greece was already living beyond its means, public wages had increased by fifty per cent between 1999 and 2007, faster than most countries in the Eurozone (BBC, 2012).
The Chinese exports are made from imported materials, so by pegging the value to the dollar, China checks its risk when it comes to foreign exchange. A cost of pegging the value is that the U.S. dollar’s movement will influence the Chinese economy either way.Moreover, another benefits of pegging the value of the yuan against the U.S. dollar is in which China expanded to own trade deficit to a record $160 billion in 2004 with United States. 2-) Over the last decade, many foreign firms have invested in China and used their Chinese factories to produce goods for export. If the yuan is allowed to float freely against the U.S. dollar on the foreign exchange markets and appreciates in value, how might this affect the fortunes of those enterprises? If the yuan is allowed to float freely against the U.S. dollar on the foreign exchange markets and appreciates the value, foreign enterprises would not benefit when trying to export out of China.
