Japan recorded a record Y6.9tn ($77bn) trade deficit in 2012 as the cost of importing fuel rose following the Fukushima disaster, and a strong yen and frictions with China weighed on exports.
...

Japan has also received support for its policy from economists and some central bankers, who argue – as Japanese officials do – that the benefits of a revived Japanese economy would outweigh the costs of a stronger yen.

When Japanese decide that they want to speculate, they speculate crazier than anyone else. It is only a matter of time for the Japanese start to hold bitcoin massively. Welcome join the bitcoin economy.

Their public debt is above 200% of annual GDP.

I think that pretty much says it all. I don't respect systems that are built on a publicly known joke, such as calling something "debt" that will never be repaid in a fair and orderly manner. It's a sign of dishonesty or having lost the connection to reality.

It's a pity. I love Japan, I really do. But that's just insane.
