"Currency wars are like a see saw - they go back and forth and back and forth."
"Currency wars are like real wars in more ways than one. They can last longer than the combatants expect, and produce unexpected victories and losses. Real wars do not involve all fighting, all the time. There are quiet periods, punctuated by major battles, followed by new quiet periods as the armies rest and regroup. "
"But currency wars are like real wars - they have a tendency to escalate. When one weapon runs out of firepower, the warring nations bring out bigger weapons. Right now the biggest weapon in the arsenal is negative interest rates."
"Currency wars are like bitch slap wars, trade wars is where the knives come out"
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.
