Japan used to be the world’s second-largest economy in 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Now, Japan has entered the more challenging stage to solve three chronic issues: 
1. Declined population
2. Alternative export industries with consumer-oriented and diverse business platforms to compensate losses in automobile and consumer electronics segments
3. Entrepreneurship and business cycles of new start-ups to sufficiently create jobs for young generation
What do American leaders think about the domestic job market and financial sectors?

A speed of GDP growth is depended on different factors, but government spending is one of key elements. When foreign trade does not favor domestic industries, the government is expected to spend more not only to offer good contracts to industries for jobs but also keep the domestic market perform well. 

How can America perform with less-dependence on government spending forces? Who can answer?

A market can offer more opportunities to investors, entrepreneurs and companies to convert into cash generation mechanism. Developing and emerging markets seem to beat off developed markets in terms of GDP growth rate, GDP per capital growth and potential consumerism. 

When a market only has a few left chances, it is a time to drive investors to other places for new investments. How is America?

Business organizations care about expenditure and profits. The former has tried to establish long-term relations with policy makers (government agencies) to receive specific incentives as direct compensation to lower business expenditures for competitive and profitable advantages. 

In particular markets, a government gives incentives to corporations in forms of low and zero taxes, low-interest and zero-interest loans, and subsidized budgets of R&D and business construction. State-funded R&D centers and other state-run agencies can access government resources and provide free-of-charge know-how and technological expertise to domestic business firms as strategic competitive tools to foreign companies. 

Policy makers usually run for their office terms with money or funds raised from donors, philanthropists and supporters. The donors are consumers, business firms, investors and others. They have specific interests that may shape policy makers’ agendas and ideologies. Incentives are written and supported by policy makers as payback gifts to supporters or business communities.
