THE DISTILLERY: Japan's dangerous diet

Jotters reveal the pros and cons of Japan's new money printing scheme, and take a microscope to Tom Albanese's Rio Tinto departure.

After almost a quarter of a century of economic purgatory Japan is printing money again in an attempt to return to the land of the living, albeit with a rapidly ageing population. This morning Australia’s business commentators look at the policy in the context of Japan’s previous attempts to rekindle its fortunes as well as the current economic environment, where it will not be the only protectionist.

Also in this morning’s shot from The Distillery, two more business writers throw their two cents in for Tom Albanese’s departure from Rio Tinto. Thankfully, the extra time to ponder the event has led to two well thought out pieces.
