    if inflation rises from here and rates rises with it, then the real rate of refinancing their debt won't change much. As long as they can grow above the real rate, they will be fine. I like the idea of shorting yen but for different reason.

    BoJ just dropped the 2% inflation target mention from their policy statement yesterday... they know too hard a target to reach. Good luck shorting the JPY...
