Talk about timely:  Yesterday [1], I pointed to a fascinating piece of research/commentary from GaveKal Research Limited [2] of Hong Kong, Stockholm and New York.

Today, the People’s Bank of China revalued the RMB by 2.1%, from 8.27 to 8.11 to the US Dollar, against a basket.

Be sure to read that piece [1] as to some of the dangers to the US economy of this revaluation.


More to come on this later . . .
