Japan said Monday that industrial production fell twice as much as expected in June, increasing pressure on companies to shed workers and cut costs as the world's second-largest economy apparently sinks into recession. The news drove the Nikkei 225 stock index to a new 16-year low, following a bigger-than-expected win by the ruling Liberal Democratic Party in Sunday's Upper House election. Production fell 0.

The index traded briefly below 14,664--its lowest close this year, which it hit Jan. 12 as Indonesia's currency was collapsing.

He's the new, straight-talking portfolio manager of the $125-million GT Global Japan Growth Fund, which has made the most of a tough situation, having risen 43% over the five years ended June 30, versus 32% for the average Japan fund (and 123% for the average U.S. stock fund).
