The Japanese economy continues to deteriorate, and in the past, the official discount rate should have been lowered to lower interest rates.1995(Heisei 7) From January2001(13)2Until the official discount rate was not lowered, it remained at 0.5%.

Poorly managed private banks have poor credit, which makes them unable to borrow in the money market or, even if they can, borrow at very high interest rates. This could lead to financial insecurity. To prevent thiscollateralIf there is, the BOJ has decided to lend to a private bank at the official discount rate without restrictions. With collateral, private banks were able to control financial instability by guaranteeing borrowing at the official discount rate, no matter how high. After that, the BOJ gradually lowered the official discount rate.2001(13)9/11 OfAmerican terrorist attacksThe Bank of Japan has lowered the official discount rate to a record low of 0.1% as a result of heightened financial instability.2006(18)7/14To2001(13) The zero interest rate policy, which had been re-implemented from March, was lifted and the official discount rate became 3%.2007(19)2/21The official discount rate was raised to 0.75%, but it was 2013% as of May 5.

This is because the base interest rate (base loan interest rate) has become less relevant as a policy interest rate, which is a measure of deposit and savings interest rates and bank lending rates.
