How Nancy Pelosi Crashed The Taiwan Dollar


I am of the opinion that when one reaches a certain age they should excuse themselves from public life.

The only two exceptions I can think of to this rule are Ron Paul and Donald J. Trump; however, Nancy Pelosi is the poster child of exactly what I’m talking about.

She’s too old and needs to retire, she’s got that classic government touch—everything she comes in contact with turns to ash. Will she even be around to face the dire consequences of her misguided actions?

People the world over are tensely watching developments related to Pelosi’s slated visit to Taiwan, a visit that CCP officials have warned may end in Pelosi’s travel retinue being shot down.

Aside from inflaming geopolitical tensions, her visit has had another destructive effect…

The implosion of the Taiwan Dollar.

According to sources, the Taiwan Dollar has seen an implosion in price directly ahead of Pelosi’s visit. Markets are voting and weighing mechanisms and the vote is in—Pelosi’s visit doesn’t bode well for the small South Pacific nation.

Here’s what everyone is saying:

Markets Insider had more on the story:

The currency dropped Sunday as much as 0.2%, with sentiment turning lower due to heightened geopolitical tensions between China and the US.

Taiwan’s currency may be weighed down as the market prices in Pelosi’s potential visit to the Southeast Asian island, which China sees as part of its territory.


Bloomberg echoed Markets Insider:

“There may be some political risk priced into the Taiwan dollar due to Pelosi’s visit to Asia,” said Khoon Goh head of Asia research at Australia & New Zealand Banking Group.

“This is the main reason why the Taiwan dollar has underperformed in the region despite the greenback being weaker,” he said.
