NEW YORK (Reuters) - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda on Friday denounced an economic philosophy that encourages the use of government spending as a primary policy tool to boost employment.

Speaking on a panel at an academic conference in New York, Kuroda said he disagrees with Modern Monetary Theory (MMT). He did not discuss his economic or monetary policy outlook directly.
