Gary Shilling talked with Bloomberg about the implications of China’s recent currency move and the European debt crisis. True to form, he is bearish – both on the Chinese move and on the European debt situation. His view is that the Yuan move comes at the wrong time given that the European debt crisis and fiscal austerity is already poised to slow global growth.

While I agree with his comments on the risks to the eurozone and the Chinese economy, I will defer to Marc Chandler’s views on China’s forex move who has fewer negative things to say about the move.
