Preview of the essay: Currency Crises

In order to answer the question of whether or not pure speculation of operators can be the root cause of currency crises, both sides of the argument will be analysed by firstly looking at the two main currency crises models.

However, I am not denying that model 1 is applicable in some situations; inconsistencies between the domestic policies of a country and its exchange regime are often so great that a crisis is inevitable and the operators will merely dictate its timing.
