Abe ≠ Koizumi (or Reagan)

I'm going to link to this Bloomberg column by William Pesek largely without comment, because it's very much in tune with my own thinking.

In short, Abe is unable to sell his policies, and has yet to articulate the specifics of how he will continue reforming the Japanese economy (a point also made by Ken Worsley here).

Meanwhile, Adamu at Mutant Frog is speculating about the early demise of the Abe Cabinet, about which I have speculated before.

It seems that Abe needs to worry more about the next fifty to 100 days, and less about the next fifty to 100 years.
