6 years ago, in 2013, at basically the start of Abenomics, the survey was in negative numbers, a minus 5 I believe it was, it went up, and now has been dropping for 4 straight quarters, down to zero. It is expected to drop even further into negative numbers in early 2020.

Further proof that Abenomics has been a failure. Yet the people dont see it, as all they hear about is how the stock market has hit 14 month highs and everything is fine!

Zombie companies, lack of reform, taxation up and massive borrowing far outstripping production and services-it shows massive failure!

So true Abenomics has been a failure though there was a surplus despite a trade war. hmmm. I have to agree though the stocks have posted high, not everything is fine but the opposite when the highs come down it will give a much realistic picture. Abe has been to busy with changing the Constitution, stretching the language to get forces mobilized and soon in military action based on yesterdays article and still not much attention is paid to what is happening much less see reality what is in front and coming this way.

Seems some live in darkness while others stand in the light, depends where you stand and how you outlook is.

Some business opportunities are still out there and some companies are going great.
