Japan has just privatized its government postal service.
My prediction: Within 5 years, Japan will have the most efficient postal system in the world.
Also: If the Japanese government continues these kinds of reforms, their economy will finally get out of its 15-year decline and become a world leader again. Maybe that's why their stock market has been going up lately while ours has been flat and appears headed lower.
The USA should follow Japan's footsteps on this one.
