I don't get it. Supposedly, "Bernanke Urges Trade Imbalance Fix: Countries Must Work Together to Fix Skewed Trade and Investment Patterns" according to the following link: http://biz.yahoo.com/ap/070911/bernanke.html?.v=9 Now how are countries going to do that? How can you make Asians buy our relatively expensive goods and how can you make us quit buying their relatively cheap goods? Only a currency adjustment can do that, right? But the article makes it sound like various countries can just set up policies and fix all this: "China, meanwhile, has recognized the need to increase its domestic spending and scale back its reliance on exports, Bernanke said. Those and other measures will help global trade imbalances over time, he added." I just don't see how it's going to happen unless, of course, the dollar falls. But here's my question: do you think Bernanke is advocating governmental interference of some sort, i.e. tariffs or artifically changing the exchange rates??
