Report Cover

Headline

As we detailed in recent Alerts, China’s GDP growth has surprisingly little impact on Japan’s own growth.

Abstract

We’re no experts on stock markets, but it does occur to us that the gyrations of Japan’s stock prices over the past six months may say less about the fundamentals of Japan’s economy than about the ups and downs of sentiment on all four of the major bourses in rich countries: the Nikkei 225, S&P 500, FTSE (London) and DAX (Frankfurt).
