The Japanese economy fell into recession three times on a year-by-year basis between 2000 and 2013. Following a general reduction in the level of income and industrial activity during those periods, Japanese consumers reduced their expenditure. The reduction in consumption set off one the most vicious side effects of a collapsing aggregate demand, which is a generalized decline in prices.

The financial services industry in Japan has been under major rehabilitation following more than 10 years of slow economic growth intertwined with periods of recession. The system has been recapitalized by the QE scheme a number of times over the course of the last decade.
Decisive action was required on a broad range of policies to tackle the adverse effects of the deflationary spiral and a stagnant economy. In order to bring the economy back on a path of growth, the Bank of Japan (BoJ) adopted a highly unusual scheme called Quantitative Easing (QE) to fight the upsurge of a deflationary path in 2001.
