Scoop on Japan Economics
The Bank of Japan intervened in September to prop up the yen as it slumped to a 24-year low against the US dollar, a loss resulting from the erosion of the reserves and the impact of the imported inflation through the pricing of energy products.
Shrinking economy in Japan was a novelty like it was in Europe too. Signs were showing not only of slow activities resulting from the disruptive supply chain bottlenecks and the Covid impact but more importantly from the change taking place in the international division of manual, robotic and logistic labor.
Bank of Japan’s Kuroda Shocks Markets by Raising the Benchmark Rate to 0.5% From 0.25%
The Japanese yen is up 3.42% against the U.S. dollar on Tuesday as the Bank of Japan surprised the world by deciding to allow the benchmark interest rate to rise to 0.5% from 0.25%. The Japanese central bank was one of the only banks worldwide to hold off on raising benchmark interest rates, as policymakers
The Bank of Japan waited for the European Storm, holding firm until the Fed and Ms. Lagarde decided to quit the position of waiting for the Russian Godot.
The first increase by the Fed responded to the financial plugging of the British economy but was confronted by the OPEC reducing oil production, the Russian to accept only rubble as payment and the Chinese to make payment only with Yuan for all the external transactions.
The conglomeration of all these geo-financial moves pushed the dollar for the first time to reach higher than the Euro in the international market while it has also increase its vulnerability.
The shift from China to Southeast Asia and Vietnam, the disappearance of ISIS as buyer of weapons and seller of cheap, the Russia – Ukraine war and the arm race, the sanctions against African and Russia and China have also been the major factor in showing how western nations have not transformed the position of the Third world economies. Economies of the South remained anchored in their dependant position toward the external sources of capital with conditionality and the loss of their income given the loss of competitiveness and their inability to pay their external debt.
Within the emerging and developing markets, they are more than 60% of the indebted countries are on the verge of defaulting first with Zambia, Sri Lanka and Ghana, Venezuela at the front line of complete default.
The recession is on the Western economies, it spreads beyond the surge of greater inflation coming from the energy and affecting commodities and food staples, the financial houses and “dough” makers started laying off shaking flour dust. In fact the flaws of the liberal distorted policies applied by the Monetary institutions in the Western societies have a great responsibility in the inflation and the insolvency of many third countries.
Even Japan had experimented such treatment when it was considered as the “Yellow Peril” by many news makers and analysists. During the period when the United States imposed to Japan, a reform of its banking and real estate market along the opening to trade, the buying and importing of rice, the devaluation of the yen and the installation of japanese car manufacturer to be located in proximity and inside of to the United State. Therefore, Japan took the role of echo room for the US economy since Reaganomics and the Chicago Boys.
