Modern Japan is full of layabouts. The country is underbreeding itself out of existence. It's economic status will decline with its population. How will the government ever pay its huge public debt without a population to tax it from?
Japan needs a government with vision and vitality to stimulate economic and population growth.

The entire industry- not just Japan- is falling behind Apple and Samsung. Apple's philosophy of simple, elegant design and intuitive user interfaces has had everyone playing catch up for a decade.
It's do or die for all companies. They don't need to copy Apple, they need to better them. Thats how Sony will turn it around.
