Public support for Japan’s policies continues from the G20, the US, the WTO and, according to this article, the IMF.

  • The recent sizable depreciation of the yen has sparked concerns about competitive devaluations, the IMF said Thursday in a report on global prospects and policy challenges.
  • “Taking a broader perspective, however, such concerns seem overstated,” it said,

  • The organization thus showed understanding of the Japanese government’s argument that the currency’s recent movements represent a correction to its excessive appreciation.
