The last part of the paper evaluates unconventional monetary policy impacts. Bank of Japan achieved accommodative financial condition and reduced uncertainty in the money market. Large liquidity buffer works preventive in case of unexpected liquidity shocks. Excess ample liquidity did not support prices and real economic activity considering broader deleveraging process and corporate markets fragmentation.
