Currency wars! This week we look at the growing conflict over currencies. In recent weeks the world economy has been on a war footing, at least rhetorically. Gone is the fuzzy talk about co-operation to boost global growth. Suddenly accusations are flying that countries around the world are cheating, using everything from qualitative easing to capital controls. The biggest battle is over China's foolish unwillingness to allow the yuan to rise more quickly. In our cover leader we explain how the various currency wars are actually three different conflicts and argue strongly against unleashing a trade fight with the Beijing regime.
