News Summary: Japan revs up economic stimulus
Thursday - 1/10/2013, 11:26am EST
(AP) - STIMULUS PLAN: Japan's ruling Liberal Democratic Party and its government were in the final stages of drafting fresh stimulus spending Thursday reportedly totaling more than 20 trillion yen ($227 billion), rushing to fulfill campaign pledges to break the world's third-biggest economy out of its deflationary slump.
THE DETAILS: The bulk of the spending package would go to support industrial revitalization and reconstruction from Japan's March 2011 earthquake and tsunami disasters. It also includes a request to raise military spending.
THE BACKGROUND: Prime Minister Shinzo Abe took office last month vowing to make reviving the economy his top priority.
