A Currency War of Words

Take that!

 

There’s a bit of a war being waged this morning as to just exactly what kind of a Currency War, if any, is actually going on out there.  The projectiles all come with a # symbol in front of them.  For those of you who prefer to avoid being hit by the sticks and stones of what may be escalating from a snowball fight, here are a few handy links for your consideration.

Let’s start with Jim Rickards letting ZeroHedge have it for attempting to school their readers with a heat map.  Here is Jim’s tweet:
