Senior BOJ official comments on monetary policy
Reuters report from comments from a senior BOJ official:
- BOJ is guiding easy monetary policy with eye on risk that excessive decline in super-long yields could hurt public sentiment
- current easy monetary policy is helping increase household income, asset prices by stimulating capex, housing investment
- increase in female and elderly workers may push down wages and prices in the short-term but will help push them up long term via heightening potential growth
