Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda listens to a question during a news conference in Tokyo in this August 8, 2013 file photo. Kuroda's massive burst of money-printing - almost $70 billion a month - has driven the yen down and Tokyo stocks up. It has also spurred the strongest economic growth among G7 countries in the first half of the year, arresting a long fall in consumer prices. But now, 12 months after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was elected and eight months after Kuroda announced the big-bang stimulus package, financial markets are looking for more stimulus - already dubbed "JQE2", or Japan's second round of quantitative easing.
