Keith Fitz-Gerald and Chris Martenson on Japan

Keith Fitz-Gerald talks about Japan in this interview with Chris Martenson.

The problem in Japan is its enormous government debt, which is 250% of GDP. Its population is very old, 30% of the population is going to die by 2050 and there are very few newborns.

He expects the yen to fall due to these dire prospects (200 USD/yen), but notes that the only reason why the yen (and the dollar) are so strong these days is because these two currency markets are the only markets big enough to absorb all this safety haven liquidity (listen at 28:00). More so, Europe has been the event that made investors flee in Japan and the U.S., giving them a little more time to kick the can.
