The Wall Street Journal is looking for a reporter who can get ahead of the competition and write insightfully about economic and central banking issues in Japan. The country has been a laboratory for some of the most radical policies among developed nations in recent years because of its aging population and frugal consumers. The Bank of Japan has resorted to negative interest rates and nearly $800 billion a year in government bond purchases to lift the world's third largest economy from decades of stagnation, with mixed success. The reporter would be expected to break news in this area and analyze the implications of policy changes for the banking sector and growth. The reporter would also be expected to explore more deeply economic issues such as the use and implications of automation, the challenge of improving productivity, and the balance between immigration and control. Fluency in Japanese preferred.
