The Bank of Japan should pursue "powerful monetary easing" to increase the chance of meeting its 1% inflation goal by 2014, says the IMF, urging the central bank to boost purchases of corporate bonds, equities, and highly-rated securitized loans to small- and medium-enterprises. Japan should also implement a consumption tax of at least 15%, higher than current proposals of 10%.

    To meet its inflation target!!! Tokyo is already the most expensive city on earth. Do they want it to be the most expensive city in the Universe? The Japanese economy/finances are a total joke.
