a: Currency market ~
b: a thermometer
What: The link is a somewhat dated article about the South Africa Currency. The writer makes the comparison between the value of a currency and the state of a country's economic health. The currency can then become a thermometer measuring the health of that economy. The general reasoning in the article applies to all countries now and then.

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
