"Obviously, all currencies cannot depreciate at the same time. Currency war is like a "zero-sum game": a situation in which each country's gain (or loss) is exactly balanced by the other countries losses (or gains). For instance, due to the Fed's QE in 2008-2012, on one hand, the US economy has recovered (i.e. stronger labour markets, more job creations or lower unemployment, wage recovery, etc.) but, on the other hand, this policy led to high inflation, currency appreciation, lower of export competitiveness, and spike in asset prices in emerging markets."
"The currency war is like a game of rock, paper, sciessors, where the Pozi Fiat paper is beaten by those that hold the rock, the rock being gold."
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.
