Unpeg(redirected from unpegs)
Also found in: Dictionary.
To remove a peg to which a country's currency previously subscribed. For example, Kuwait unpegged the Kuwaiti dinar from the U.S. dollar and shifted to a currency basket in 2007 because the dollar was weak at the time, resulting in high inflation. When a country unpegs a currency, it may choose to peg the currency to something else or to let it float.
