Reuters — Japan govt's reflationist nominee for BOJ board wins lower house approval

Asahi Noguchi "has also lectured ruling party lawmakers on modern monetary theory (MMT) – a concept floated by some U.S. academics as a means to boost the economy via unlimited money-printing.

Not a proper characterization of MMT, but at least a mention. And it is progress that an MMT advocate may be on the BOJ board.
