Will 2015 see a currency war? Published: Dec 24, 2014 6:01 a.m. ET
Switzerland fired the latest salvo in the currency wars this month.
Alarmed that the collapse of the Russian ruble — and other currencies — could drive up the Swiss franc, the Swiss National Bank took the extraordinary step of slapping a negative interest rate of 0.25% a year on deposits.
To clarify: This isn’t an interest rate charged on loans. It isn’t an interest rate paid on deposits. It’s an interest rate charged on deposits. Putting Swiss francs in a bank account will cost you 0.25% more than keeping them under the mattress.
So much for all those Nobel Prize-winning economists who told us you couldn’t cut interest rates below zero.
The move isn’t just bad news for all those oligarchs and gangsters and spies who keep their money in numbered Swiss accounts.
It’s yet another reminder that when it comes to monetary policy, we are living through history.
Not long ago we were getting used to ZIRPs, or Zero Interest Rate Policies.
Now we have NIRPs, or Negative Interest Rate Policies.
Throw it on the pile with quantitative easing and all sorts of other “extraordinary” policies being tried out everywhere to keep things going.
The Swiss have been fighting back in the currency wars since 2011, when the European credit crisis was causing such a flight into Swiss francs that the central bank had to adopt a virtual peg to the euro. That episode meant, in short, that in a world of soft currencies any nation trying to run a hard currency on its own is going to have a very tough time.
The plunge in the Russian ruble this year — it is down about 50% against the U.S. dollar — is the most dramatic recent twist in the currency markets. But it isn’t the most important.
Check out the Japanese yen. The yen is down about 25% on a trade-weighted basis over the past two years, according to the Bank of International Settlements. It’s down about 20% against the U.S. dollar just since the summer. The yen is now so cheap that, as I recently discovered, it is actually cheaper to buy a new iPhone in Tokyo and have it shipped over than it is to buy one here in the U.S.
This is not an accident. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is trying to kickstart the country’s economy by printing as many yen as he can. He unveiled “Abenomics,” which is basically quantitative easing on sake, two years ago, and kicked it up a notch this fall. His landslide re-election this month means that we can expect more, not less, going into next year.
A weaker yen is a net positive for Japanese jobs and industry, because it makes foreign imports more expensive in Japan, while making Japanese exports cheaper abroad.
This is a zero-sum game. A weaker yen against other currencies is the same as stronger currencies against the yen. The eurozone was already struggling, even before the latest slump in the yen. And there are some signs of slowdown in China as well.
It would be surprising if there weren’t. A cheap renminbi was a cornerstone of the Chinese industrial revolution. But the national currency has risen about 20% in the past four years on a trade-weighted basis, in part because of the plunge in the yen. Asia’s two biggest economies are basically fighting a war with paper currencies. What could possibly go wrong?
Emailed to Recaps:
A couple was Christmas shopping at the mall on Christmas Eve and the mall was packed.
As the wife walked through the mall she was surprised to look up and see her husband was
nowhere around. She was quite upset because they had a lot to do.
Because she was so worried, she called him on her mobile phone to ask him where he was.
In a calm voice, the husband said, "Honey, you remember the jewelry store we went into about
5 years ago where you fell in love with that diamond necklace that we could not afford and I told you that I would get it for you one day?"
The wife choked up and started to cry and said, "Yes, I remember that jewelry store."
He said, "Well, I'm in the bar right next to it."
