Japan: A Free And Timely Lesson On The Dangers Of Overly Accommodative Monetary Policy

"The Japanese have a reputation for excessive courtesy.

While their efforts should provide the rest of us with an invaluable benefit (provided we are alert enough to heed the clear warnings), the lesson will cost the Japanese dearly." - an excerpt from the Sock Puppet Kabuki; Nikkei Today Parallels Dot-Com Bust
