30 Copyright © 2011 Cengage Learning. All rights reserved.2–30 Exhibit 2–6 ●Exchange Rates Suppose you are selling a product in China for 8,000 yuan. With an exchange rate of 8 yuan to 1 dollar, you get $1,000 [8,000 (yuan selling price) divided by 8 (8 yuan = $1)] for each product you sell. Suppose that this price and exchange rate give you a 25 percent profit margin. Now let’s see what happens with the extreme fluctuations in exchange rates that sometimes occur: If the exchange rate becomes 6 yuan to 1 dollar, the yuan is strong (and the dollar is weak). When you exchange the yuan for dollars, you get $1, [8,000 (yuan selling price) divided by 6 (6 yuan = $1)] for each product you sell. Now let’s make the dollar strong (and the yuan weak). If the exchange rate goes to 10 yuan to the dollar, you get $800 [8,000 (yuan selling price) divided by 10 (10 yuan = $1)]. You can either change your yuan selling price to maintain your 25 percent profit margin or make more or less based on the exchange rate. Now think about the complexity of FedEx doing business in over 100 currencies.
