Japon : Japan’s Fight to Change Suicide Culture Hurt by Latest Recession

le 9 janvier 2015

[Bloomberg] Japan’s slide into recession last year wasn’t just a blow to Abenomics. For some in the G-7 nation with the highest suicide rate, it may pose a question of life and death.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s concerted campaign to spark confidence in a population dulled by two decades of economic stagnation contributed to a 14-month slide in the number of suicides. The improvement halted in September, with the country entering its fourth recession since 2008.
