End of December 2010, most emerging countries are struggling to contain the appreciation of their currencies, so maybe currency crises were not likely in the foreseeable future. But conditions could change quickly. This case examines different types of currency crises and especially two: United Kingdom in 1992 and Hong Kong in 1998. These were two very different types of crises, and they understand the protagonists could serve well if future crises occurred.
