The emerging market crises of 1997-2002 were worsened because of rampant speculation. Please notice that this was a currency crisis and not a financial crisis like the one occurring in 2007 - 2008. Do you think speculators cause such crisis or do they simply respond to market signals of weakness? Explain. How can a government manage foreign exchange speculation?

Although speculators often receive a bad reputation within financial markets, I do not think they can be blamed as the actual cause of the currency crisis between 1997 and 2002....
