Vote here on Japan’s economy and its election
Britain’s Association of Investment Companies has UK investors who run Japanese equity funds whether they think the general election on Sunday will have a positive impact on the country, which is slowly emerging from recession.
Their answers can be found here, but the consensus was that the Democratic Party of Japan would defeat the ruling Liberal Democrat Party and that this would result in more consumer friendly policy or economic revival through higher living standards.
Managers were more divided on how long-lived any positive impact on stock market would be.
Our unscientific mini-poll below gives you the chance to vote on the issue — but as ever your comments are also welcome.
