  7. 7. Question & Answer Session</li></li></ul><li>The Economics of Natural Disasters<br />It is quite easy to vividly visual the devastating effects of a natural disaster and how that would directly translate to similar effects on the economy of the immediately effected area. But what is the economic pattern following natural disasters in those areas? And what of surrounding areas or intertwined economies? <br />
  8. 8. The Economics of Natural Disasters<br />Until 1873, the yen was a dollar unit, like all dollar units, descended from the Spanish Pieces of Eight and more or less assigned the same dollar value unit as all currencies world wide.<br />The yen lost most of its value during and after WWII which cause some instability and then price fixing of the yen at ¥360 per $1 through a United States plan in 1949 in a movement to stabilize the Japanese economy. <br />Following the US measures to devalue the dollar in 1971, Japan agreed to a new, fixed exchange at ¥308 per US$1. However, the new fixed rates of the Smithsonian Agreement were difficult to maintain in the face of supply and demand pressures in the foreign-exchange market. Therefore in 1973, the rates were abandoned, and the major nations of the world allowed their floating currency which is the basis of the Forex. <br />
  9. 9. The Economics of Natural Disasters<br />In the 1970s, the Japanese government and businesses became concerned that a rise in the value of the yen would hurt export growth by making Japanese products less competitive and therefore damage the industrial base. Japanese government therefore continued to intervene heavily in foreign-exchange marketing (buying or selling dollars), even after the decision to allow the yen to float.<br /> Aiding in this effort, the Bank of Japan maintains a policy of zero interest rates to discourage yen investments and effecting the “carry trade” with investors borrowing yen to invest in other currency and further devalue the JPY <br />In 2007, The Economist estimated the JPY to be 15% undervalued against the USD and as much as 40% undervalued against the EUR..<br />Image courtesy of google.com<br />
  10. 10. The Economics of Natural Disasters<br />The JPY has one of the more seasonal patterns of any currency shown here in monthly reports of rates 1999-2005<br />Ex. One who sold USD/JPY at the start of each August and closed out the trade at the end of the month would have made over 2200 pips in the 7 yr span of 1999-2005. That is a pretty strong recurring theme.<br />Image courtesy of fxtsp.com<br />
