  1. In an economy like Japan’s, only the financial industry can cause a financial crisis, no?

    As long as the financial industry is properly and strictly regulated, as in Canada, then the likelihood of financial crises is really low.

    The fiscal situation becomes a risk only when you’re heavily indebted to foreigners or you’re part of a poorly conceived currency experiment, as with Greece.
