Bank of Japan policymaker signals chance of ‘pre-emptive’ stimulus withdrawal
AKITA, Japan -Bank of Japan board member Asahi Noguchi said on Thursday the central bank could "pre-emptively" withdraw monetary stimulus if trend inflation, which takes into account wage and services prices, overshoots expectations and stays above its 2 percent target.

But he said the chance of Japan experiencing a positive cycle, in which wages rise in tandem with inflation, has "clearly" heightened compared with pre-pandemic lev...Keep on reading: Bank of Japan policymaker signals chance of ‘pre-emptive’ stimulus withdrawal
