It’s very important to prepare options for in case the BOJ needs to ease policy.

Whether the BOJ uses easing options will be decision that will need to be made upon big economic shocks.

If necessary, the BOJ must act to achieve price stability, appropriate job market even if doing so involves side-effects.

Disinflation is something many economies face, not just Japan.

The BOJ’s current monetary policy has been effective but it is taking quite a long time for inflation to accelerate toward its target.

The BOJ must first deal with aftermath of COVID-19 with cooperation of government then proceed with steps to achieve inflation target.
