Bloomberg Politics published this video item, entitled “Japan Cabinet Shift Indicates Ongoing BOJ Easing, Economists Say” – below is their description.

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida reshuffled his cabinet but has retained key economic posts. Economist says this indicates the country is likely to keep the central bank’s monetary easing intact. Meanwhile, Kishida replaced the female minister in charge of tackling the country’s falling birthrate and installed a man who sought to deepen his understanding of the issue by trying out a “pregnancy belly.” Jon Herskovitz reports on Bloomberg Television.
