The 2% inflation target is unachievable and the Bank of Japan might be in the process of recognizing as much, particularly with Prime Minister Abe possibly about to declare victory over deflation, says Takahide Kiuchi, former Member of the Bank of Japan Policy Board. Kiuchi-san served on the BoJ board between 2012-2017, following a number of years as Head of the Economics Research Department and Chief Economist at Nomura Securities. He is currently Executive Economist at the Nomura Research Institute.
