Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Demographic dramas": one would think a nation like Japan would be particularly able to gracefully degrade with the size of it economy and demand. Alas. Surplus labor is always in fashion for one, really only one, reason --to depress wages and circulation, to support the store of value in retained earnings, capital invested generations ago. For what it's worth Japan hasn't reported GINI index in close to a decade, but it's looking forward to a flush which will not be re-distributed.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
