What about demographics?



November 04, 2012 – Comments (2)

I think looking at Japan's economy is important because they are "ahead" in the aging population and they had their housing bubble just prior to the massive shift of increased seniors in their population.

Anyway, I don't think this article on Japan's deflationary cycle has considered demographic effects.

To compare Japan to the US however is silly.  Japan is a racial issue, the US is an immigration issue.  Apples to oranges.

For a pretty empty article, one thing stands out: the Keynesian 'solution' isn't. They've already tried monetary stimulus and it failed. They've tried fiscal stimulus and it failed.

But since they are only listening to Keynes' followers, they see no other answers out there. It's sad.
