Is Japan the dark economic vision of the future?

Excerpts of article by Martin Fackler, NY Times online.

Now, as the United States and other Western nations struggle to recover from a debt and property bubble of their own, a growing number of economists are pointing to Japan as a dark vision of the future.

  • A "dark future" is a little dramatic. All super powers go through a life cycle. The US is right now in the decline stage. We were already in that stage a decade ago when I took a poly sci class.
