Japan has new Prime Minister
NBC News — Japan's Finance Minister was selected monday to become the country's sixth Prime Minister in five years. Yoshihiko Noda, who came in second in the first round of voting by his political party, got a majority in the second round.
There's a lot on the 54 year old's plate, he has to deal with a surging currency, forge a new energy policy while ending the worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl and find funds to rebuild after the March 11th tsunami and earthquake. Japan's former Prime Minister resigned last friday.
