These funds were used to build and expand the country’s industrial infrastructure (Okimoto, 2004). Conversely, after the asset bubble burst, the economy slowed down because consumers started saving in excess (Kuepper, n.d.). One reason for why people saved more is the deflationary expectation that encouraged people to wait for their money to increase in value before spending it....   [tags: admired economies in the world]
