A contribution to the Financial Times <PDF 67kb>

(Note)
The internet version of my Financial Times article (published: April 1 2003 20:54 pm) had the title:"A weaker currency will make Japan stronger"; the printed version (published: April 2 2003) was tilted:"A weaker currency is the best medicine for Japan". They were changed by the FT editors without consultation with the writer. The original title was:"A global solution needed to deal with the Japan problem". Because of space limitation, references to the article, which had existed in the original version, was dropped in the published version. The full, much longer version<PDF 20Kb>, which includes the references, can be read.
