No interest in adopting helicopter money: Japan's Aso


TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso said on Thursday that financier George Soros has recommended "helicopter money," a type of money printing, to generate inflation, but that he rejects the idea because it is too dangerous.

Aso made the comments in response to questions in parliament about whether Japan should adopt a more expansionary fiscal policy.
