73. The Currency war is on! Here are the players -

War sounds scary. In the traditional sense, war evokes casualties and loss. For investors, currency wars simply convey economic redistribution.

For instance, if there were only two stores in town selling identical items, and one store raised prices while the other store lowered prices, demand would certainly follow the discount … but overall demand would be the same.
