Sweets in the typical Japanese diet

Today I read a posting at Marginal Revolution (an economics-themed blog) that poses the question: Why don't Asian restaurants have good desserts?

As in the case of most such cultural differences, the answer can be found in economic realities going back far into the culture's historical past.

Anyway, here is the reply I posted on the MR website. (Do a page find for "Mellow Monk" if your browser doesn't scroll down the page to my comment.)
