Despite Criticism, U.S. Doesn't Name China as a Currency Manipulator
So much for Romney's hole card
The US has decided not to declare China as having manipulated its currency to gain an unfair trade advantage.
But the Treasury did say that China's currency, the yuan, remains "significantly undervalued" and urged China to make further progress.
In its semi-annual report, it said Beijing did not meet the criteria to be called a currency manipulator, which could have sparked US trade sanctions.
