    What lessons can be learned from Japan's lost decade?

    In this video it is blamed on aging demographics, with a lower ratio of the population able to work because many of them were so old:



    But in this link we read that many of the young could not find jobs:

    (That probably only exacerbated the demographic crisis, since if the young couldn't find good jobs they put off having children and had fewer of them)

    For those of you who don't know, Japan's "Lost Decade" was a period of Recession and lack of economic growth between 1991 to around 2009.

    Perhaps refer to the economic analysis that has analysed this in-depth, rather than going with the patronising "for those of you who don't know"? You never actually refer to economics. Weird. I knew a fascist who did the same. I wouldn't dream of suggesting you're the same. Fascists are assuredly not the same. Same wise, its surely just a failure to deliver detail.
