The Looming Japanese Crisis
AbstractAfter more than a decade of economic stagnation and minimal structural change, Japan stands on the brink of outright financial crisis--the only debate is whether the Japanese government can dodge its imminent economic threats for another six months at most, or ride the wave of global expansion to throw still more money at these problems with decreasing effectiveness until the public debt becomes unsustainable (which should be no later than 2005). Either way, volatility in Japanese asset markets will be extremely high for the next 36 months, with significant declines on average in asset prices and the yen.
