Looks like the entire world is in a self-induced recession from poor policy.

But its export sector is under pressure from rising costs, 

It should read import sector. With the weak yen, exports are a plenty.

Its not just a Japan recession, people all over the world is feeling this recession. The world economies printed more money than they had and now its time to pay back. The world is broke so who do they look to fix it? The people who work that they will tax to death to get them back to where they THINK they should be!!!
