If it seems that we're under a constant barrage of the Western Media Myth (WMM) that (a) Japan is "failing" and that (b) this "failure" is primarily due to Japan's "talent problem" don't fret because we are.
Further, we are told that Japan's supposed "lack of talent" has manifested itself in such as way as to be responsible for Japan's supposed "lack of creativity" and "lack of innovation"".
As I have argued for over a decade now, these claims and even statistical comparisons by the Western Media are not only useless but downright dangerous (to those that want to fully understand Japan) as they ignore the real root causes of Japan's underperformance.
