The Bank of Japan (BOJ) must conduct a genuine review that takes a harder look at the rising side-effects of prolonged easing, former central bank Deputy Governor Hirohide Yamaguchi told Reuters.
“The costs of the bank’s stimulus programme have become too large to mitigate in the review in March.”
“It’s unlikely the BOJ can come up with an outcome that has a substantial impact on the economy and markets.”
“The review will probably be just a show of gesture that it’s doing ‘something’ to address the cost.”
