The reasons why Abenomics is sputtering can be summed up with two words:

China's sputtering, Germany's sputtering, the global scene is sputtering right now.

Nearly all the problems in Japan are due to the greedy private sector, which that same article lists, as if they're Abe's fault. The prime minister is hardly responsible for decisions made in boardrooms nor for the quality control scandals in factories that Pesek lists.

His bearish view on Japan has been shown wrong time after time after many long years now.

In the end, it's the bureaucrats who run the show here in Japan, the Prime Minister is just the puppet who is stood up to speak before us.
