2:12 am
bank -- there is a sense that there is not much demand for funds. another factor was china. you think about one of the big factors that is waiting on their economy right now. it is china's economic slowdown. stimulusa sense that in japan might not be able to solve that problem. maybe better to relate -- to wait. the third thing is politics, both mastic and international. the mastic league, households are struggling with higher food prices. i think mr. abe has made it clear to the central bank that he is a little bit concerned that the yen has probably gone far enough. internationally, you have the tpp hanging in the balance, waiting to be ratified. japan does not want to be seen ende engineering a weak

2:20 am
inflation. do you think those things together made sense? sense for bojs obviously. there was a clear timeline to win he would achieve it. he was fond of it. 2% in two years time. having missed that deadline, i itnk the bank will not feel easy they can basically postpone the timing of that inflation target to any time they prefer. much his politics playing a part in all of this? how much is the relationship with the minister of finance and the boj, the boj deciding to delay? guest: well, i do not see much politics in it. at least not with the

part of the developed economy. the weakness is an issue and i don't think bank of japan want to appear to being trying to depreciate further down. >> how much more could monetary policy do for the japanese t this stage? good: i think that is a point. a cost andways benefit to anything. monetary policy is no exception. you could argue the effectiveness of additional easing is starting to decline. naturally japanese government including the central should look elsewhere. that are other tools monetary policy could use. they could start buying equities.
2:23 am
i think by then, maybe bank of japan still hasn't achieved the inflation target and raising sales tax, dumping the demand would be a bad policy. even now i think the japanese government should add the fiscal stimulus by deleting the scheduled tax hike in 2017. anna: thank you for joining us from japan macro advisors where he is chief economist. to bank central policy and the drugmakers. they have entered into preliminary friendly discussions, whatever that means

stage, but's talks are already really significant. elliott: that's right. one reason is the fact that iran has a rising influence and is being recognized as such not just within the region, its have it rival, but you being recognized as a regional player by the united states whose relationship does not extend much beyond those nuclear negotiations they have been having. there are significant talks never have these rivals, not as enemies and rivals, sitting on the table trying to work out some kind of compromise over the syrian civil war. little love lost within the saudi's and the iranians. america also against russia's recent intervention. minister isrmer

2:34 am
early for an agreement of substance. the biggest obstacle is the presence of basha as leader of syria. he has the backing of the russians who see him as playing a role in some transitional government and staying in power and maybe being able to contest any future elections. that is not something the americans want although they seem to step back from insisting he must go. stay in power, the americans would only want that to be for a very short time before having some kind of fresh election in which he would not be able to stand. there are other players in this, turkey is adamant that assad must go. it is quite difficult to see how they can resolve their varying issues. the people fighting on the ground have an important role, but they're not taking part in

2:38 am
conversation with one of our guests. , turkey's election, walk us through what you think the implications of this are. >> is it does manage to find a coalition, i think the market would result is a net positive. they have been worried about its dominating politics. in a way that is not great for turkey's democracy. if you do get checks and balances, if you from the coalition which was difficult, if it is easier, i think that is the case. the markets should rally. that politics will help turkey. the economic situation is not getting much better. i think that will be a rally that a lot of people worried -- might come around. is there a need for structural reform? bhanu: turkey's own
2:39 am
idiosyncratic problems are enough to have problems even if emerging markets are strong. negative within turkey. the reason for that is that turkey have external deficits that are extremely high. local demand for turkish products are weak. they are still pumping the credit pedal. they are still increasing, turkish banks have borrowed quite a bit. to unlistedas gone companies in the construction sector which makes you think about 1990's asia. the only differences, turkey does not affect currency. i'm afraid, i think there are a few imbalances in this economy. politics is one problem, but not the main problem. politics, youot are saying you don't like a number of indicators. should turkey be in my portfolio? if it iswould say no,
2:40 am
