ABSTRACT
The article reports on the rally at the Japanese stock exchange. The rise in the Nikkei to its highest level in four years has some convinced that Japan's economic woes are finally at an end. A majority of global fund managers surveyed by Merrill Lynch are enormously optimistic about the country. Fewer bad loans plague the banking system, there is increased labor flexibility and a pickup in full-time employment, a surge in takeover bids and industry consolidation as well as increasing efficiency. However, some analysts argue that little of substance has changed. The article concludes that whether or not a recovery is underway, Japan's stocks deserve a place in a long-term global-equity portfolio.
