Stunning Fact: Japanese Stock Market at 1982 Levels

The Japanese stock market is at a 29-year low.  Buying in 1982 and holding until 2012 would have been a disaster.  It is often said that Japan has experienced a lost decade of economic growth.  In stock terms, it is a lost 30 years.

Japan offers a stark lesson of what happens when a nation falls into a deflationary economic hole.
