The survey of 114 companies, including Toyota Motor Corp and SoftBank Group Corp, found that Japanese blue chips are becoming increasingly pessimistic about the country's economic outlook, up from 12 percent at the beginning of the year.

At least the aforementioned Softbank, which just suffered a big loss due to its bad venture capital bets, will benefit from Kishida's "New Capitalism" plan to subsidize venture capital business.
