Japan’s fated Phillips’ curve?

Seriously, though…

Originally, I thought this was REALLY weird because the Phillips curve is supposed to go the other way. There’s a tradeoff in most economies between unemployment and inflation, but in Japan they seem positively correlated. Then I realized this is actually flipped — so that took some of the fun out of it.
