Japan is now on the verge of a new economic bubble for the 21st century... While the 1980s bubble was a homegrown development, bubble 2.0 is expected to be inflated by factors at home and abroad... The world is paying attention to Japan's stock markets... There's more interest in Japanese property now...So, "2.0" equals the next big instance of something substantial in recent memory.
