Sure. Japan is going to be like us soon. But we have a few years

Sure. Japan is going to be like us soon, thanks to its own crazy QE. But we have a few years of reprieve owing to three factors:

1. Our global imperial army continues to exert pressure on the world economy to play our way.

2. The dollar will be the global reserve for a long while yet, giving us our continued unfair advantage in trade.

3. The domestic energy boom from fracking is heating up and will give a breather, allowing us to behave badly for the next couple of years.
