The Yuan Float, One Year Later

Nouriel Roubini and I debate the issue, in the latest edition of the Wall Street Journal Online's Econoblog feature.  I'm a bit distressed, though not really surprised, that so few questions have been resolved since Nouriel and I last met on the Econoblog battlefield.

Hi Dave,

He he, yes the question of the yuan float and subsequent appreciation certainly seems in a stalemate. The show troddles on in other words ...

On that note ... have you seen this from China Law Blog?


'These guys [that would be you and Roubini] obviously know their economics, but I fault them for essentially ignoring China's reality on the ground in their discussion, as though that will not play a huge part in what happens to the Yuan. They both talk about China's overheating as a fact and they both cite Chinese growth statistics as though they are wholly accurate.'

I am not chosing side here, just pointing to another angle.
