Abenomics Seems to Be Working: Ritholtz Chart

A quick look at the status of Abenomics.

We are more than 18 months into Abenomics -- Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's set of economic policies -- and, so far, it seems to be achieving some level of success.

Credit is due to Japan's monetary stimulus for ending deflation and its fiscal stimulus for helping to start the country's economic recovery.
