Japanese Finance Minister Fujii says competitive currency devaluations would ruin the world economy, and he’s right.

Other comments from the official:

  • Dollar weakness due to low interest rate policy
  • It’s natural to hold strongest currency in Japan’s forex reserves
  • Japan’s forex reserves poicy may be supporting dollar
  • Although Geithner said dollar should be stronger, reality is it has not strengthened
  • Weak yen better for exports, but shouldn’t steer economy by this policy alone
