The orthodox Keynesian delusion means you are regarded as a lunatic for even asking germane questions let alone suggesting appropriate solutions.

Abenomics has hit a consumer spending
wall with all the anti deflation price rises and the weak Yen also
pumping up the prices of all imported goods and materials so consumers
have stopped spending. Abe has got his higher retail prices but at the
cost of being back in a recession.

No. And why not? Maybe because those trillions of dollars go to all the wrong places instead of where they are needed?

It’s sort of like putting a message in a bottle (in this case, trillions of messages in trillions of bottles) and hoping that someday, some of those bottles will float over to right place.
