Because of such strategic missteps, U.S. consumers could be facing a long and painful economic malaise, similar to the “lost decade” of 1990s Japan, or the stagflation-riddled 1970s in the United States, Rogers said.

Make no mistake: If that happens, there are two clear culprits - current Fed Chairman Ben S. Bernanke, and his predecessor, Alan Greenspan.
