The following are two incredible articles from John Mauldin, author of Endgame, describing the current state of the Japanese economy and financial markets. Rather than try and summarize the details, I will provide the links for you to read them in full. The first article was posted last Saturday so it came out before the Japanese stock market crashed this week. The second was released this morning:
All Japan, All The Time
The Mother Of All Painted In Corners
For more Mauldin, one of the brightest financial minds in the world today due in large part to his constant world travels where he sees what is happening in countries by actually experiencing it, the following video provides an excellent summary of where we are today in the Endgame.
