Apple to Build 2nd Campus, Hire 20,000 in $350B Pledge

Apple is planning to build another corporate campus and hire 20,000 workers during the next five years as part of a $350 billion commitment to the U.S. economy.

BOJ Maintains Stimulus as Inflation Lags Behind Economic Growth
Thursday, 21 December 2017 10:24 WIB | FISCAL & MONETARY |Ekonomi JepangBank of JapanBOJ

The Bank of Japan left monetary stimulus unchanged in the final policy meeting of 2017, remaining on cruise control as it waits for a pickup in stubbornly low inflation.

The central bank will continue to target interest rates and buy financial assets to achieve its 2 percent inflation goal, it said in statement on Thursday. The result was predicted by all 44 economists surveyed by Bloomberg.

With Japan™s economy continuing to grow at a healthy pace, and inflation at least moving in the right direction, there is little pressure on the BOJ to act any time soon. This sets it apart from its global counterparts, with the Federal Reserve hiking interest rates and the European Central Bank moving closer toward policy normalization.  

"A solid economic recovery is giving the BOJ time to sit tight, Norio Miyagawa, a senior economist at Mizuho Securities Co., said before the decision. "The BOJ™s plan for now is to wait and see by sticking with the current stimulus.

Yet economists and investors are looking further ahead, with some speculating that the BOJ will join some of its international counterparts in tightening policy next year. Governor Haruhiko Kuroda™s press briefing later Thursday will be parsed for clues as to whether and when that might happen.

The BOJ board™s vote on Thursday was 8-1 on policy rates and unanimous on asset purchases. Goushi Kataoka, who joined the board in July, dissented on the policy rates.

The BOJ hasn™t altered its policy framework since September 2016, when it implemented its yield-curve control program, setting an interest rate of -0.1 percent on some bank reserves and a target of around 0 percent for 10-year government bond yields. It also continues to buy enormous amounts of assets, mostly Japanese government bonds.
