1 INTRODUCTION The value of China’s currency, the renminbi (RMB), has become a contentious issue. Many argue that the currency is undervalued and has been the main source for the country’s large current account surpluses especially with the United States (US). There has been mounting external pressure on China to allow the RMB to appreciate against the US dollar.
