Thoughts on Japan

At a Christmas party last night, I spoke with a friend who translates advertisements, contracts, and other business documents from Japanese to English for firms in Japan doing business in the United States. He told me that he’s noticed his work orders always begin to increase just before the Japanese economy starts a spurt in activity, and that he has been very busy lately.  That may be nothing more than his impression, but disaster recovery can often be a stimulant. One of my wishes for the New Year will be that the Japanese people can go beyond rising above the disaster of the past year and emerge from the doldrums of the past two decades.
