We're Not Japan But One Can Always Hope

In a brief 42 seconds, Bloomberg TV perfectly describes the sad reality that we are facing in the US. Conjuring images of gold medal winners and years of effort, this brief clip notes that not only is the current recovery the worst since WWII, it is worse than the poster-boy for dismal 'lost-decade' economy's - Japan. Somewhat ironic in its dysphoria given Larry Meyers' counterfactuals and the massive stimulus so far - but we do still have hope (and change). It seems we should forget 'Citius, Altius, Fortius' since reality is 'weaker, slower, longer'.
