Yes, a few heavily indebted companies getting a boost. America with the largest debt in the world to Japan with the highest ratio of debt in the world.

Such partners in crime!

Who cares about what the stock market might be doing? It's totally unconnected and divorced from the real world we are struggling to survive in with its very high level of inflation and no wage increases.

Japanese corporation has been preparing for this ^ for decades, automating as much as they possibly can. Nowhere else in the world are you greeted with a ticket vending machine just to order a bowl of udon, machine to take and count cash, kaiten sushi....

Fanuc etc. is at the leading edge of global automation, in fact much of today's global supply chain relies on Japanese robotics developed years ago. Look up Preferred Networks for a look at future AI tech.

As sad as it is, Japan corporations values human labor at near zero compared to other OECD countries, they are writing their way into a future independent of human labor.

This is the massive drain that gets larger and larger each year with the accompanying negatives such as more of the following:road accidents,missing people,crime etc.
