Q: What does If Japanese consumers understand they’re not on the hook for all the gross debt outstanding, their mood could potentially perk up. mean?
A: @katoo:
hmm, tough one. this a sounds like an economics question about the country's national debt.

example: (I am making up these numbers!) "The national debt is 50 billion dollars...that means every Japanese person owes $80,000" ... in other words, they did a math calculation dividing the total debt amount, (50 billion dollars) by the population of the country to calculate an average. ($ 80,000 (remember, made up numbers!)). In reality, every individual citizen does not actually owe $80,000 personally. Some have no personal debt at all, some have a little, some have a lot, etc., but to read a statement like that can be depressing if it is not explained. if the Japanese understood the idea better, they would feel better about it I.e., not be depressed about it (" their mood could pick up")
