WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, even though it's after the fact,


Explanation:
I must beg to differ.

"svilimento" refers to depreciation, or a drop in prices.

"Devaluation" (as applied to currency, which is the usual context) in Italian is "devalutazione" or "svalutazione."

The correct English word here is "depreciation."
