The Yen – Currency War or just Growth ?

Prime Minister Abe has survived a meeting with US President Obama without having his policy criticised. ‘Abenomics’ is seen in Japan as a way of growing the economy not devaluing the currency, if the Yen weakens that’s a bi product. Prime Minister Abe appointed key people to lead the Bank of Japan Kuroda-sama as Governor, a person liked in Japan but also respected internationally, which is key if Japan is going to succeed.
The Yen has fluctuated at times quite widely between 90-95 Yen range over 5% swings.
Now it seems so much sentiment has been placed on ‘Abenomics’ what’s going to happen next??
At least now we have a clear plan for getting out of deflation environment and into a true inflation target.
On the other hand we have no evidence of structural change to accommodate this. Personally I still feel people are remembering the BOOM and aftermath of the last surge and slightly cautious from jumping in.
But I do feel there has been a huge shift in people minds and the attitude is ‘What if this all true? Can Japan go through another BOOM?

Let’s hope so, I look forward to seeing what happens .
