    I believe that is partly due to the fact the J-gov wasted trillions of dollars for wasteful infrastructure spending during the 90s and the early part of this decade. It just threw money away to any...

    It seems Aso is the most out-of-touch PM Japan has ever had (that feat itself is very difficult for anyone to achieve). Well, who cares. His party will be decimated in the next general lower house...
