Serengeti Steve performs over 600 shows a year throughout the country and has been featured as a Las Vegas finalist on NBC's hit show "America's Got Talent.” His talents have even earned him a place in the famous "Guinness Book of World Records.” Although Steve's love of all animals is high on the list, his first love and driving force will always be entertaining the children and adults attending his performances. Steve's greatest asset is his ability to combine a thrilling yet comical presentation which involves audience participation.

Japan is in the middle of a historic experiment. Nearly a quarter-century after the end of its post-World War II economic miracle, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is boldly attempting—through massive government spending, monetary easing, and an overhaul of Japan’s highly regulated economy—to end a long period of political paralysis and revive the country, lifting it into a leadership role in Asia.

Michael Auslin, a resident scholar and the director of Japan studies at the Washington, D.C.-based American Enterprise Institute, examines the effort and the lessons it may hold for the West. Many of Japan’s problems are mirrored in America and Europe. Its success, or lack of it, could signal whether they are on a similar path to low growth, political incompetence, and social malaise.
