Japan Cabinet Shift Indicates Ongoing BOJ Easing, Economists Say

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida reshuffled his cabinet but has retained key economic posts. Economist says this indicates the country is likely to keep the central bank's monetary easing intact.

Jon Herskovitz reports on Bloomberg Television.
