The BOJ is buying assets at 75% of the Fed's level in a Japanese economy only one-third the size of the U.S., says Kyle Bass, putting last night's new policy in perspective. Japan is trying to materially devalue its currency (FXY) while holding rates flat. The "economists and central bankers believe they can live in that nirvana," says Bass, but he believes they will lose control. JGBs (JGBT, JGBL, JGBD, JGBS) are in nirvana today, the 10-year off 11 bps to 0.45%.
