America to become Japan?

It already is--and has been--Japan for a number of years. The economy is adding jobs extremely slowly. Everything is stuck is slo-mo except the stock market--which is bouncing like a Superball. If Obama is re-elected, then it could get interesting.

If a conservative wins in 2012, then another crash is possible. It will depend who controls Congress. If conservatives control Congress, then a crash is virtually a certainty.

Boomers buying short-term Treasuries is no surprise.
