Freetowin : I read the article posted here: It states that the yuan is crashing. Actually, it started falling in October. It was trading $1=7 rmb. In October, it fell to $1=6.68. It has hovered there ever since. The changed noted in the article are fractions of a penny. You can google the exchange today $1=6.67.

Freetowin:  If the rate of exchange for the RMB is declining, it actually means the RMB is getting stronger. When I arrived in China, my $100 bought 720 RMB. At today’s exchange rate, that same $100 only gets you 667 RMB. Since I live in China currently, I know this personally.

Freetowin:  The article should read “The dollar fell against the rmb today”. What this is doing is raising the price of Chinese products for buyers

Shybaby:  Freetowin… it then takes less RMB to get the same USD…. i.e not really crashing but getting stronger !?  so against the USD …to a USD buyer, goods are more expensive

Freetowin:  shybaby…correct
