Planet Money podcast – I hope it isn’t prescient

NPR’s “Planet Money” show is interesting enough that I listened to it while exercising at the gym today. This may say more about me than about the show, but I find it fascinating. It’s hard to make this stuff interesting and they do a great job.

This week they talk about Japan’s “lost decade” of the 90s, and the economic policies that brought them back from the brink. There are eerie parallels between their situation and ours, but I’ll let you listen and decide what you think on your own.
