ariechert asks,

Can the average Japanese person invest in mutual funds and stocks in the United States? Could be a bonanza for us if they can. - Art

Yes they can. The parts of the article that I "snipped out" described what the big investment houses like Fidelity and Morgan Stanley are doing to sell their wares in the Japanese market.

However, I suspect few Japanese will venture overseas with their funds. As a group, the Japanese are probably even less interested in International investing than Americans.
