Shigeyoshi Matsuo (松尾臣善 Matsuo Shigeyoshi?, March 6, 1843 – April 7, 1916) was a Japanese businessman, central banker and the 6th Governor of the Bank of Japan (BOJ). He was a Baron and a member of Japan's House of Peers from 1900 through 1916.
In 1904, Matsuo assembled the heads of 35 commercial banks, offering favourable terms for lending by BOJ.
Matsuo construed complaints about "bad times" to mean that economic conditions were normal, and that there had been diminished opportunities for speculation.
