Seems like yesterday that everyone wanted to emulate the Japanese.
The Nikkei stock index is down 78 percent a little more than 22 years after its peak at the end of 989. Imagine the U.S. equivalent – the S&P500 at 343.61 in 2029.
What an incredible to testament to the civility of the Japanese people. Hard to imagine peace in the street in the U.S. in similar circumstances.
