Quantitative easing full speed!
Philippe d'Arvisenet, Director of Economic Research

“ […] Note that inflation getting in negative territory just tells us that the purchasing power of income is to increase because things are cheaper and that is mainly driven by the fact that one year ago oil prices were on the upside. ”

Caroline Newhouse Cohen , OCDE Economist

“ […] it is really astonishing in fact that Japan has been so much impacted by the financial crisis while its banking system is relatively sound but you can explain it perfectly well by the fact that Japan is really open to foreign trade. ”
