A wise man once said, "It's the economy, stupid!", and in many ways this may be the single most important maxim for contemporary politicians to understand. While much has been made of democratic systems, wherein citizens' concerns can find an outlet, at the end of the day, the biggest concern for most people is how their stomach is going to be fed. If Prime Minister Shinzo Abe cannot address this issue, it may be his undoing.
I think the economic crisis in Japan and the way Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is handling the situation will absolutely mark the end of his political career. If he pulls himself together and formulates a better plan to keep Japan afloat in these trying economic times then perhaps he could save his career, otherwise it's the end of the road.
Prime Minister Abe will be gone soon. He promised recovery and things are worse now than when he too office. Japan is in deep economic trouble and needs new ideas. The old methods have failed. Hopefully they will find the right person to get them out of this economic funk.
Japan is not the only country in recession, but the Japanese have had them before and survived. It's not the fault of the government solely, but how trade is with the rest of the world and how consumers act. It's possible the rest of the world is also on the brink of a recession and Japan is the first. It would be wrong to blame the government, even though people like to blame someone or something.
