I think China is very likely to see an appreciation of their currency in
2014. That is going to a good thing for chinese wage earners, for
chinese consumers who are going to make a better deal on the things they
need to buy. Its not going to play out so well over here because as the
chinese currency becomes more valuable, their goods become more
expensive and americans already have a hard time buying stuff. Look at
the Christmas sales. they have been the worst since 2009.
