Because of its reputation the mere hint was enough to prompt some buying of marks, paring the dollar rate back to just under Dm1.84 as speculators who had sold short took their profits.
The Bundesbank's professed concern is that because the bulk of industrial raw material inputs plus fuel and energy are dollar-priced commodities, a weak Deutschmark brings the risk of imported inflation.
The worst that might happen if the Deutschmark stays low is a half-point rise in the inflation rate to perhaps 2% next year, according to Stephen Schneider, chief economist with Banque Paribas.

Currently, in enforcing a Deutschmark debt in (say) Japan, Japan looks to German law to define the Deutschmark, and German law says that the DEM is one part in 1.95583 of a EUR.
Alternatively, Japanese law might say that a Deutschmark debt remains a Deutschmark debt, even though it was for a while (but is no longer) repayable in euros, and therefore that German law should determine the form in which it is now to be paid.
