Shirakawa Returns Early Amid Reports of BOJ Meeting

Bank of Japan Governor Masaaki Shirakawa returned to Tokyo today, cutting short a visit to the U.S. following reports the central bank is considering holding an emergency meeting.

Shirakawa decided to return a day early from the U.S., where he was attending a Federal Reserve event in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, central bank spokesman Satoshi Yamaguchi said in Tokyo today, without elaborating.
