I wouldn't blame him at all for leaving early.

Keep devaluing the Yen. More jobs at home and a blessing for exporters. The EU and US have been devaluing their currency for the last few years, hypocrits.

Doesn't matter to Abe, he can probably be replaced by an easier manipulated muppet.

I smell Japan is heading to the same distruction pre 1930 without Shirakawa. Ignorance is a bliss.

How on earth Abe is expecting to meet 2% inflation target whilst he is spending like drunken sailor?

He has made right decision for stepping down earlier. Abe is interferring the BOJ business.

Pumping more money will get more growth. However pumping can not last forever due to higher debt. The growth will lose momentum without pumping. It is a vicious cycle of Abenomic.

Abe is interferring the business of BOJ too. Boj needs to be indepedent without Abe lectures.

Farewell Cheif!

Abe needs to push down the Yen more rapidly, we need to start competing with the rest of the world again. Down down down with the Yen! SSShhhhhh don't let the Americans know, they forced us to appreciate the Yen and cause 20 years of economic stagnation.
