Abstract

Daniel Burstein's flamboyant new book, Yen, makes two fundamental errors typical of the pop-thinking about Japan that characterizes much recent journalism on the subject. First, Burstein compares Japan's economic performance to that of the United States and concludes that Japan's success somehow represents a dire threat to America. He could not be more wrong.
