super_grass: Ronin_S: "The okozukai system is part of a broader Japanese financial culture where families often save huge amounts, particularly when times are bad. The result has been an economic disaster..."

Uh, how is it a disaster that families don't fritter away their money until they're in debt and suddenly there's a financial emergency? What kind hack writing is this?

Don't you follow economic theory?

For a strong economy to happen we need to boost consumer spending as much as possible while stabilizing the economy through higher savings rates.

If you can't grasp it then I'm afraid you have no place in the world of financial punditry.

I'll move to Japan and endure being issued an "allowance" if it means an extra $386/month of walking-around money.
