The U.S. Cat And China's Yuan (Part-II)
It was to the credit of the Bush administration, especially the Treasury under Hank Paulson, that it was aware of the deeper implications of U.S./China relations and did not see it only through the prism of the Yuan rate. It looked upon it as one necessary to deepen the relations between the two countries and, in particular, in the financial sector. In successive Strategic Economic Dialogue (SED) meetings, Paulson raised the issues in a composite way and gave as much importance to other issues. On the exchange rate, he held the firm view that it was in China’s interest to have a flexible rate, a rate as close to market as ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
