Unease Grows at Bank of Japan as Oil Casts Shadow on Prices:; (WWW.COMMODITYBAZAAR.CO)

A summary of opinions from board members at the Dec. 19-20 meeting released Friday shows a switch in mood from the guarded optimism over prices at the October policy meeting. The BOJ left policy unchanged at both meetings.

Falling oil prices are a matter for concern and will contribute to a further delay in reaching the central bank’s 2 percent inflation target, according to individual opinions of board members. The summary doesn’t clarify who made each comment.
