The end of Japan:


...things can change pretty drammatically fast... Japan seems to be the next domino piece to fall.

Greece, Cyprus... Japan. I guess Europe will take more time.

Japan has citizens who hold her debt, as opposed to the USA which pawns it off to China. I think Japan can hang on a lot longer than folks suspect.

Actually, most Japanese debt is held by institutions (ask Kyle - just not on this interview). But in turn, they (mostly) hold it for citizens - who are cashing out, demographics is a bitch...but the individual holdings in Japan are only a few % of the outstanding.

FWIW, here's the rest of the full 20 min interview above:

Japan's largest trading partner is China and its second largest trading partner is the United States. Seems like there would be a lot of money riding on not seeing Japan crash. Going to be interesting to see if they can keep it from happening...:popcorn:

Yes and the Japanese support their country, they love their country more than westerners... they are also well-known for holding tremendous savings. So Japan can easier "save itself", while the USA and the EU are in deep :doodoo:
