Haruhiko Kuroda - nominated to be next BOJ governor - ratchets up expectations for the central bank's first meeting under his leadership (April 3-4), telling parliament he will do whatever it takes to end deflation. Adding a bit of humor to his confirmation hearing, he says the BOJ's easing isn't aimed at weakening the yen. Dollar/yen -0.1% at ¥93.43. The NIkkei +0.7%.

    Why is it humorous that Kuroda claims the BOJ easing is not aimed at weakening the Yen? Ben Bernanke, Timmy Geithner et al. have consistently maintained that the US is committed to a "strong dollar policy"..........while continuing to print TRILLIONS of dollars via QE!

    There is now nothing Japan can do to reverse its economic, financial, technological, demographic and geo strategic decline.
    It has passed its tipping point as a polity.
    While shared delusions and deceptions may provide comfort for another few years they cannot disguise the truth from the current generation of Japanese that the long twilight of their society and nation has begun and an even longer night awaits.
