Every country manipulates currency in a way. Fixed exchange rate countries have more work to do maintain a fixed exchange rate. But even those with floating exchange rates needs US dollars handy or their money printing presses on h standby.

AM I the only one who don't understand 'they've attempted to stem the inevitable devaluation of their currency' part? at 1:20, behind the footage, news saying 'China lets Yuan fall further' I think those two sentences contradict each other . Why does China want to stop the devaluation? devaluation means rise in exchange rate, so that would be helpful to boost its export.

US resorts to wars to maintain the US dollar as world “key currency”.That “key currency” status has allowed Washington to manipulate the value of the dollar because the US remains the sole unchallenged world military leader. Facts.

American talents raise their hourly billing rate. China’s illiterates lower their hourly billing rate (through currency devaluation). In 1978 1 yuan was almost equal to 1 dollar. In 2018 7 yuan is equal to 1 dollar. Basically, if you could afford to hire one Chinese servant for one hour each day in 1978, today that servant works 7 hours for the price of one. Only the Chinese see value in feeding at the bottom.

China does manipulate its currency. You cant post 500 billion dollars a year in trade surpluses. If you arent manipulating your currency. When China's trade balance is zero. Meaning zero losses and zero gains. Then you know the currency is balanced. But 500 billion a year indicates extreme undervalue-ness. And the dollar is freaking worthless. You cant buy anything with it. And China stuck holding all of this worthless money.

The currency is undervalued. China should just sell its foreign reserves and then use the money to spend on nuclear missiles. What the Yuan is worth will be determined by the free market. The govt doesnt need to take part in the value of the Yuan. A stronger Yuan will lead to more purchasing power. Allow the Chinese govt to buy more stuff from abroad. A weaker Yuan will reverse that and allow Chinese corporations to export more abroad while reducing how much the govt and its people can import.

In which way does the Chinese Central Bank manipulate its currency? If it liberates the Chinese Yuan, would the Chinese people even have more money to buy everything in the world than they do it today? See the Canadian house bubble. Everywhere are the Chinese.

One minute she said that the Chinese currency holds "greater weight" than the pound. But then she goes onto to say that the Chinese currency has "far to go" before rivalling the dollar. Although the pound is stronger than the dollar. Makes no sense.

Tejas Khoday (2 years ago)
You have not explained how buying $500 Billion was currency manipulation. If China wants its currency value to be competitively cheap, why would it try to bolster its value? The video is just too fast paced and lots of text (subtitles, quotes etc.) which make it disturbing when combined with that sorta background music. Hope this feedback is taken positively. Thx!
Tejas Khoday (2 years ago)
The background music is really disturbing.
ᅚBlank (2 years ago)
If the Yuan deflates and the Dollar inflates, how is that China being cheaper? The Exchange rate could go up to be 6USD = 1Yuan and from there the dollar keeps inflating and the Yuan keeps deflating so eventually 12USD = 1yuan. That would mean more USD is required for the same Chinese good. How is that attractive to buyers if it costs more?
bassdewd (2 years ago)
Com on, this is extremely biased. Why do you think US can consume as much as they do and have such cheap products? Exactly for this reason. It benefits rather than damage the US economy.

by the way mention one central bank in the world that is not manipulating its currency... the truth is, build economy that is based on massive production and when you manipulate your currency, it just works super fine.. but when you only print dollar and enforce using it with wars and removing head of states and having puppets all over the world to use it by force or fire... you are on the wrong side of history... that is the difference between u.s and china.
TopArtic Mudrel (2 years ago)
China is finally taking over, slow but steady.. Lesson to learn here, you don't build economy backed by wars and removing head of states for backing the empty and useless dollar. You build economy with super hard working people. Now this is communist finally taking over, an ideology the west created and campaigned against.. That is the idea of creating an ideology in the first place... Meanwhile I don't know what to call ppp. It just makes super sense.. Private public partnership, Chinese invention

I am confused. Why can't China print more money, so that the huge population can get benifit from it? and When you print more money, shouldnt the value goes down? How did China be able to purchase so many USD without any warning? Who exactly own it, the government or companies??? ???????????????????????

chillstep4life (2 years ago)
It's called a "currency peg," not "Currency Manipulation." Many countries have a fixed peg against the dollar. Why? Because the dollar is the worlds largest reserve currency. Don't get mad at China, or for that matter nearly 90% of the world that peg's their currency to the dollar. Why? Because the U.S. has chosen a monetary policy that benefits Wall Street, but not Main street. Those manufacturing jobs are not coming back to the U.S. unless the U.S. wants to relinquish its privilege of being the worlds reserve currency. There are pros and cons to everything in economics, monetary policy is no exception. So, calling China a "Currency Manipulator" is just the easy way of bashing China for out playing the U.S. Like I said, 90% of all countries peg to the dollar, this is called a fixed currency. The U.S. uses a free floating currency, just like the Euro and Yen, which are also considered reserve currencies. This entire channel is built from simple people, who know very little about a particular subject and then quote the first online article they see as fact. If you really want to know something you should do your own in-depth research about it, not watch these short 3 minute videos that try to summarize an in depth novel into a few spark-notes.

pegging in US dollar helps in trade advantage and we do all benefit from the "free market". Why is it China pegging the currency and the rest of the world cannot compete? Please do your critical thinking.
aconsideration1 (5 months ago)
Sorry dude. A peg is not the same as currency manipulation. The peg is fixed at a certain % of the dollar and rises and falls in tandem with it. China is manipulating its currency value based on transactions.
Eugene Mak (8 months ago)
But doesn't pegging lock the currencies in a limited range? But China can devalue its currency 2% in a day to stimulate exports. Am I getting it wrong?
Whit h (1 year ago)
but by not pegging, doesn't it make the currency more volatile, less stable?
TheRealNoodles (2 years ago)
because you have no domestic policy space. Pegging your currency, you have to have both the currency you're pegged to and your own currency to manipulate the price. If you don't have the currency reserve necessary then you can be stuck in a trap. Foreign currency comes into the country when you export more, so you have to export more than importing. Another thing you can do is, keep domestic wages low so people can't afford to import so export is more than imports. Having pegged currency is not flexible.

GREy angElCE (3 years ago)
For all those who think that China is bad or whatever i want to clear you some things 1) The Chinese people are more patriotic than the American ones as they sacrifaces their own lives for a better generetion rather than having a debt that their grand grand children have to repay. 2) America is manupulating his own currency also... it is called lowering interest rates of central bank. 3) A businessman doesnt care about his nationality. The only thing that he cares is about profit (See Apple). So being proud for other american's fortune is like saying " My neighbour have the biggest dick in the world"
