China's currency devaluation ripped global risk markets, but the real fear is that what's behind the move could be a bigger problem for the world economy.
Global stock markets fell and commodities were crushed. Emerging market equities were casualties, and currencies from the Mexican peso to the Australian dollar were smacked.
