There was a William Pesek opinion piece in the Japan Times recently that had this line:
Yet optimism about "Abenomics" is mostly an overseas phenomenon. Even though they elected his party, few Japanese seem to view him as the savior they have been waiting decades for.
Why do the Japanese keep give him and his cabinet 70% ratings then? And I thought most overseas people (in money markets at least) disliked Abenomics as they feel it reeks of exchange rate fixing?
This is just a space-filler article until I get round to doing this one…
