Why Abe Shinzo Might Succeed

I have a sense that if a Democratic Party of Japan-led government had proposed debasing the currency, fiscal irresponsibility and standing up to China over the Senkaku Islands, the Hallelujah Chorus would have undermined the international image of Japan, calling the government "clumsy" and "amateurish" and its actions "politically motivated."

So perhaps there is a silver lining in having Abe & Company in power after all.
