"I trust that many of you are familiar with the story of Peter Pan, in which it says, ‘the moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it’. Yes, what we need is a positive attitude and conviction." - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda

  1. LOL! Many would love to see both Kuroda and Abe both do a simultaneous swan dive together while holding hands. Quoting children's fairy tales now? I guess they'll make a NIRP mascot soon.

  2. Love to see Janet "The Felon" Yellen also take that dive.

  3. Clearly the lunatics have taken over the asylum.
