“For additional easing measures, various possibilities exist such as cutting short-term and long-term interest rates, boosting asset purchases and accelerating base money expansion,” Funo said in a speech to business leaders in Matsue, western Japan.

How can you cut from 0%? Are you going to start paying banks and other lending institutions money to borrow your money? That's simply ludicrous!

Right, you are going to print more money!

Warn of Japanese risk before global risks. We live in Japan. Is BOJ trying to get our attention away from internal Japanese risks ???.

"For additional easing measures, various possibilities exist such as cutting short-term and long-term interest rates, boosting asset purchases and accelerating base money expansion"

Do same as the last 30 years or so which never worked out...

This is definition of stupidity or, perhaps more applicable, senility.

Good luck Japan !

if risks to achieving its 2% inflation target grew

=/= 'cutting interest rate - but I'd like to know how that work.

The only way to boost inflation is to cut income tax or increase wages.

Notice how no one from the BoJ mentions the excess capacity from China is flooding the world? Yet, he pans protectionism.

Japan looks to me like it is still ruled by the samurai class, but in suits.
