ABSTRACT

The role of monetary policy instruments in preserving price stability and maintaining the overall economic well-being in any country is significant. A number of researches conducted so far have examined the positive effects of successful monetary policies implemented by Central Banks of different states. This research paper also focuses on examining the influence of monetary policy mechanisms implemented by Central Bank (i.e. Bank of Japan) on the economy of Japan between 2001-2010 by analyzing the changes in distinctive economic indicators, including Gross Domestic Product (GDP), Consumer Price Index (CPI), interest rates and money supply (M1).
