In fiscal 2005, Japan's economy will grow 2.8% in real terms, led by domestic demand growth in consumption and nonresidential investment. Due partly to FRB interest rate hikes, the U.S. economy will slow to its potential growth rate of 3% by late 2006. While this will moderately ease the large current account imbalance, there is a growing risk of a sudden correction to the economy. In fiscal 2006, Japan's real economic growth rate will decline to 1.7% as exports slow, and nominal economic growth will edge up to 1.5%. While the core CPI inflation rate will climb to 0.3%, quantitative easing is not likely to be lifted earlier than summer 2006 due to the government's cautious stance.
