He feels that the real concern should be with China’s large global surplus rather than with the (negligible) effect of the renminbi on America’s workers.

For example, if one assumes that a 20 percent appreciation of the renminbi would elicit no further appreciation among the movers but a 20 percent appreciation among the stickers, then the weight of the appreciating currencies in the Federal Reserve’s dollar index (inclusive of China) would be 31 percent (not 40 percent as in the earlier example), and this would lead to about a 6 percent real effective depreciation in the US dollar (about twice as large as for a unilateral renminbi revaluation).
Korea) might reverse course and use large-scale intervention to lower the value of their currencies (Park 2007). The dollar is still overvalued by a considerable degree (Obstfeld and Rogoff 2006). Failure of Asian currencies to share appropriately in the needed real effective depreciation of the dollar would imply either of two undesirable scenarios: either other nondollar currencies—like the euro, the Canadian dollar, and the Australian dollar—would have to appreciate unduly when they already have made an important contribution (having risen in real effective terms since the dollar peak in February 2002 by 26, 20, and 48 percent, respectively) or the total amount of dollar depreciation would be too small to produce a meaningful reduction in the US global deficit (Truman 2005).
