Abe's $100 billion yen for growth

Shinzo Abe's radical plan to reinflate Japan follows the 'whatever it takes' approach of the US Fed, ECB and Bank of England. At the earliest it will see results in the second half of 2013.

In simple terms, Abe wants to inflate the Japanese economy by coordinating easy money and a dose of fiscal stimulus. One feature of Abe’s economic agenda is to overhaul the Bank of Japan with a "bold monetary easing” which will have as its focus a 2 per cent inflation target. Informally it will aim for nominal GDP growth of 3 per cent. In recent decades, these economic results have rarely been seen.
