Japan (Insert random subtitle or Izzy worden)

In 1852, was assigned a mission to force the opening of japanese ports to American trade, through the use of violence if needed. On November 24, 1852 he set out to complete his mission in pursuit of a Japanese trade treaty.Matthew finally reached Japan on July 8, 1853 at the entrance of Edo Bay. He ordered his ships to stay in the bay and refused the japanese demands to move. He tried to intimidate the Japanese by showing them a white flag and a letter which told them in any case they wish to fight the Americans will destroy them and it also commanded the government to open up trade routes.

The Japanese government had no idea what to do with this threat due to the illness of their head of government. So on July 11th the government decided to simply accepted the letter and asked Matthew to move his fleet southwest to wait for a response.

Matthew decided to head to Hong Kong promising to return next year for the response. He returned on February 14 1854, after only half a year and with ten ships and 1600 men. With more ships and men this put even more pressure on the Japanese. He was finally allowed to land on March 8. And finally on March 31 1854 the treaty was signed to open two ports for the Americas.

The nuclear power plant, Fukushima, is located in the town of Fukushima After the giant earthquake the reactors shut down automatically. When the cooling systems were trying to cool down the reactors a tsunami hit the cooling system causing them to shut down. So without the cooling system the core melted from reactor 4 and the release radioactive materials in the other reactors. In 2012 the company told reporters that it had failed to meet basic safety requirements such as preparing for core meltdowns. It has been estimated that there will be 1,600 deaths to radiation in the future.

In the late 1980s Japan was in GNP per capita worldwide. But that all ended in the 1990s when its economy stalled and it entered its lost decade. The lost decade was largely caused by interest rates and houses that cost way too much money.

When the government realized this they raised the interest rates this led to a stock market crash and a debt crisis. Finally the issues manifested themselves to a banking crisis which led to the government giving lots of money to the banks to keep them from going bankrupt

The country had very low growth during this time and deflation in products. The stock market hovered at a record low and its property market never returning to what it once was.
