Bank of Japan set for unlimited money printing. What could possibly go wrong?
Sadly, when, as the first observer, I recommended the Bank of Japan "switch on the presses" in 1995 (Asian Wall Street Journal) they wouldn't listen. Last time I met Mr Kurodat.co/I8GAUPqclS

Japan, the poster child of QE insanity, never addressed it's structural and competitive problems for decades, chose instead to just keep going into debt. Now it's taking deficits of 4-5%xGDP just to pretend to grow GDP by fractions of 1%. Yen carry trade sends moral hazd abroad🤦♀️ pic.twitter.com/ZleAtNiPTI

Central Banks new mandate:
Buy everything in unlimited amounts, forever.
Dont think about the consequences.
