In this article, Anil Selarka or Kalidas (His nick name), describes the folly or Americans, Brits and Europeans in imposing economic sanctions on Arabic and Muslim nations as and when they pleases and freeze their FOREX reserve lying in United States and United Kingdom.

Author Anil Selarka evaluates the aftermath of Japan tragedy of quake and tsunami. He deliberates on the options open to Japanese government and where it commits serious errors. He says that the best option open to Japan was to sell its dollar reserve and buy yen instead of just printing more and more yen which will cause most serious inflation. With Japanese government throwing almost 25 Trillion yen into the money market (equivalent to $ 300 billions), he says that this money will be up in smoke in just two days. The need of the hour for Japanese government is to indulge into tangible assets growth and its management, not paper trading like money market operations. He says that Yen contrary to all expectation will rise to 60 from 82 level against US dollar. With Japan possibly remaining absent at future treasury auctions in United States, the possibility of higher rates in USA is written all over it. If dollar weakens due to Japanese selling, Chinese the largest holder of US treasury are not going to keep quiet. They too will join Japan which may escalate the currency crisis.
