Tadashi Sasaki (banker)
During Sasaki's tenure, BOJ became a shareholder of the Bank for International Settlements BIS); however, in 1970, the head of the Japanese central bank was not invited to become a member of the BIS Board of Directors.
Japan experienced an unexpectedly high rate of economic growth in 1972. However, the country began to increase its focus on social welfare and quality of life which marked a significant change from Japan's policy of "economic growth first" in the years since the end of World War II. Inflationary pressures occurred as a result which Sasaki countered by forecasting tighter monetary policy in early 1973.
