You obviously have never taken a course in macroeconomics.
A high marginal propensity to save means that they have a low propensity to
consume, and thus the aggregate demand is low. Consequently, economic
growth will continue to be slow while this trend continues.
You are aware that the Japanese economy is in a slump, right?

So instead American's are so wealthy that they own their own residences? In
Japan, many people are crammed into a small area, but in the US that same
number of people would have multiple places of residence.

Yes, it is an economic crisis. If consumers fail to consume, then the
economy falters. Actually, that would probably lead to deflation.

It doesn't really matter. As long as he's Keynesian, he teaches from the
same basic precepts.
