This article examines the Japanese banking crisis, the subsequent Japanese government's intervention, and the economic effects of this intervention. The author connects the situation in Japan to the economic crisis in the United States, and argues that the intervention of the federal government was effective in helping the state of the economy. He uses this as a basis to defend similar stimulus programs in the United States.
