This paper explains that, for the past ten or twelve years, Japan has been a miracle of contradictory economic factors, experiencing little inflation, little economic growth, a deterioration in trade, more government spending than previously, and unreliable savings and investment, both by business and individuals. The author points out that, in the year 2000, for the first time, Japan?s unemployment rate had exceeded that of the United States; but this may be because of a difference in the definition of the official unemployment rate. The paper relates that investment in Japan was, arguably, partly the cause of the real GDP growth in Japan of 5 percent per year form 1985 to 1990, versus 3 percent the first half of the decade; however, by early 1991, Japanese consumption and business investment had slowed, and residential investment declined.
