For Japan, Policy So Far Is Too Little Too Late

Aug 12 2014 4:46pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

For all Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's energy, he needs to think deeper and work harder still. Japan's economy requires radical and fundamental reform. Yet much of what Abe has done so far is pretty conventional. His one venture into needed basics can only be described as weak.
