Asian currencies have been getting hammered, and we have been beating on the associated economic fallouts of that reality for the last 6 weeks in our sector portals. Many CFO's imply to us that were not prepared for this. Neither are sovereign governments who are dealing with heightened social unrest associated with importing currency inflation.
