Japan PM Abe says “The Next Stage of Abenomics Is Coming”


Japan PM Abe, writing a piece in the Wall Street Journal (that’s one way of earning export revenue for japan, I suppose): The Next Stage of Abenomics Is Coming

  • Some have said that Japan’s structural reforms—what I call the “third arrow” of Abenomics, alongside the first two “arrows” of monetary and fiscal policy—are at a standstill and that wage increases aren’t keeping up with price increases. But there is no reason for alarm. We remain on the path toward a revitalized Japan we began in December 2012.

Abe goes on to say what he has done so far, and what is i the pipeline still to be done

More at the link.

He didn’t mention Scotland …

Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) considering imposing limits on mortgage lending


Article in Australian Financial Review overnight (does not appear to be gated): RBA ponders home lending risk limits

From the article:

  • Treasurer Joe Hockey conceded on Thursday there were “clearly significant” price gains in parts of Sydney, Melbourne and “to some degree” in Brisbane.
  • While expressing qualms about intervention to lean against price gains, Mr Hockey said “obviously the Reserve Bank will look at some of the macro-prudential issues”.
  • The remarks imply regulators led by the Reserve Bank are under mounting pressure to consider measures such as loan-to-valuation limits adopted in recent years by countries including New Zealand and Canada.

Note also:

  • The Reserve Bank has long questioned the efficacy of macro-prudential regulations
  • Reserve Bank governor Stevens told a parliamentary inquiry early this year that one consequence in New Zealand was that first-time buyers were the first to be pushed out of the market
