  •  Japan is a good example of government inaction (9+ / 0-)

    For more than 20 years Japan's political parties have done everything than can to protect the monied interests that allow them to exist.  These included whole sale corruption involving construction of public works projects which benefited no one except the political elite and the major construction companies.

    To this day Japan's economy continues to lurch from one deflationary spiral to another all because its political leaders refuse to address the actual problems facing the country.
