The entire discussion on the EU, US and UK is on gross debt so let’s keep a level playing field. Besides, net debt means little if you have an aging population that wants to go on pension.

Try explaining to a class of MBA finance students why the yen is at 80 and interest rates are at 0.2% (no typo there).

As long as guys like these guys (www.WeWereWallStreet.com/Olympus-Senior -Citizen-Problem.html
) are running Japan, they’re never going to get out of their rut.

If we were bettin’ men, we’d be bettin’ on Japan as the next dom.
