‘Brexit’ Collateral Damage Puts Japan in Hot Seat - WSJ

The first wave of “Brexit” damage has made a major hit: Japan.
As the U.K. contemplated life after Europe on Friday morning, Japan’s yen made its biggest surge against the U.S. dollar since the midst of the global financial crisis in 2008. The Nikkei 225 Index plunged when news outlets called the result, as circuit breaks temporarily suspended trading. London caused mayhem in Tokyo.
Touching less than 99 yen to the dollar, this brings Japan’s currency back to where it started just as Abenomics was ramping up in 2013. With interest rates already negative, a weak currency is one of the few tools Japan has at its disposal. A strong currency will be devastating for efforts to engineer inflation.
