Why Japan will never recover

Japan's huge money-printing program isn't about lifting inflation, it's about trying to avoid a total financial collapse.

You’d think that a central bank that is throwing ¥80 trillion (around $US730 billion) into the economy every year -- through government bonds, equities, ETFs, REITS – would be able to muster a little growth and inflation, right?

This is after all, 15 per cent of GDP it is printing -- every single year. Not to mention the fact that it follows quickly on the heels of the last ‘bold and aggressive’ easing a year and a half ago -- (¥60-¥70 trillion per year that time).
