Spacmonkeys. ITs not just some economic forum, Its the World Economic Forum. The on where all the major movers and shakers, heads of state, businss power players go every year to discuss the stat of the world. This document will be one of the things that will influence their decisions.
If power is all about mitigating risk, these this is what they have to deal with to retain said power. The thing about this is that it states plainly things that people on ATS and other places have been saying, and been laughed at.
People said that countries were deliberately devaluing currencies in synchronization, to hide the fact that everything was going to hell in a handcart!. Other said this could never happen you're crazy. Well look! it's there in blue and white!!
The key in being successful in all this, is to look at the risks and the planned responses to them. These are the responses the governments will employ. If you also know what they will do, what they are actually doing and understand why they are doing it, can you not see how valuable that is???
And maybe that is what "renewed leadership of international currency exchange rate cooperation" means!
