Toshiro Muto, Deputy Governor, Bank of Japan

John Wheeler, Acting President, Japan Society

Expectations are high for the new Bank of Japan team that took the reins in March of this year. Governor Toshihiko Fukui quickly showed a flexibility and take-charge approach that has reassured market participants somewhat, including openness to ideas such as purchases of exchange-traded funds and foreign bonds and other unorthodox methods of fighting deflation. But in truth, the Bank’s arsenal is limited and the battle just begun. Bank of Japan Deputy Governor Toshiro Muto provides a comprehensive look at the goals of the current central bank leadership, and how they plan to achieve them.
