    A little tidbit….

    In Michael Lewis’ book, “The Money Culture”, published in 1991, he fictionalizes this Japanese earthquake scenario using the future date of (if I recall correctly) Sept 1st, 1993. On Sept 1st, 1993, there indeed was an notable earthquake felt in Tokyo (although of a non-damaging magnitude).

    I always wondered how well his scenario would have played out if the big one truly did hit.
