BusinessWeek's International Figures of the Week page provides a wealth of global investment data, including weekly changes in the major market index in 13 countries from Australia to the U.S. Also includes extensive currency cross rates, central bank policy rates, and government bond yields. And each week there's a Country Focus section that provides a snapshot (including a chart) of one country's economic prospects. This week: Japan.
