Japan aims to jump-start economy with $1.4tn of quantitative easing!

Japan's central bank has promised to unleash a massive program of quantitative easing – worth $1.4tn (£923bn) that will double the country's money supply – in a drastic bid to restore the economy to health and banish the deflation that has dogged the country for more than a decade.
As part of a new set of policies known as Abenomics, formulated by Japan's new prime minister Shinzo Abe, the Bank of Japan will buy ¥7tn yen (£46bn) of government bonds each month using electronically created money, with the aim of rekindling demand and pushing up prices and wages.
