I noticed the other day that Abe went to Davos, Switzerland, to boast about how he fixed Japan’s economic problems via debasing the currency as much as possible thus enabling higher export profits with the US and EU.

England has a long history of falling into depressions that sometimes last for more than a generation. Seems that Japan likes to do the same.
So today, we read very old newspapers and talk about very old debts. And how depressions are beloved of coupon clippers and other people who rely on collecting rents and holding bonds.
