Interesting to see the different spin on this at different media outlets. Just read the same story headlined " Japan,s factory output rises less than expected " and the tone of the article was rather less upbeat than the JT version above. Gotta love statistics.

Japan’s production overall is making “one step forward and one step back,” the ministry said.

Kinda describes the entire Japanese economy the last 30 years or so.

This is to be expected with a dropping populous, and people not needing to buy things. Sounds normal to me.

Economic reporting in Japan: Factory output rises (month 1) - Consumer spending falls (month 2) - Factory output rises (month 3) - Consumer spending falls (month 4)... You get the picture. Only similarity between the two being that we're getting nowhere.

Supply rises according to their figures. Shame demand is falling as nobody has any money or decent secure jobs.

-3 ( +1 / -4 )
