The Japanese-language Nikkei (Nihon Keizai Shinbun) reports that the national debt was calculated at the end of June as being 943 trillion yen! Using the July 1st estimate of the Japanese population as being 127,920,000, that works out at 7,380,000 yen per head. Great. (See also earlier post on recent Japanese bond auction).
