PPP and risk management

A question from Yahoo! Answers:

What is the importance of Purchasing Power Parity in managing risks?

None whatsoever. Purchasing power parity works only in the long run and only between countries with similar levels of economic development. Risk management, however, deals mostly with short-run problems regardless of income disparities between countries.
