Stansberry Research: Creating Investment Awareness to the Public
Recap: Inflation in Japan
In 2016, the policymakers in Japan were worried about a possible deflation in the country’s economy. This fear prompted the Bank of Japan to act by implementing measures that would help fight deflation. As a result, the country’s interest rates were lowered. According to the Bank of Japan, this move is expected to continue indefinitely as the Bank seeks to increase inflation up to the set rate of 2%.
According to Steve Sjuggerud, the move by the bank will help the growth of the country’s economy and strengthen the stock market. His prediction has since then proved quite accurate. The country has experienced an increase in its stock by 20% since the implementation of these policies. However, things took an unexpected turn when the Governor of Bank of Japan Haruhiko Kuroda announced that the bank was seeking to end the country’s stimulus program. Kuroda still hopes that the state will reach the targeted 2% inflation in a short period. However, several people such as Steve do not necessarily agree with Kuroda’s point of view in this matter. According to Steve, Japan is nowhere close to 2% in inflation and the country will not have achieved its goal even by 2019.
