A very serious question that investors face today regards whether Japan is or isn’t serious about politicians taking over Japan’s central bank.
Personally, I think the politicians are serious, as well as “seriously wrong”.
If you think that I am wrong, please consider Yen Declines After Abe Says He May Change BOJ Law.
The yen declined versus its peers after incoming Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe said he will consider changing the law on the central bank unless it boosts its inflation target to 2 percent next month.
Abe said on Japan’s Fuji Television yesterday that he will consider revising the law governing the Bank of Japan if it fails to increase its inflation target from 1 percent at its January meeting. He is poised to become prime minister after his Liberal Democratic Party’s coalition secured a majority in elections on Dec. 16.
