The highest year-end finish since 1989, and to be honest with you I don't see any improvement in the economy over the years I see severe decline.

However it is calm before the storm, get ready for massive crash, high unemployment.

The highest year-end finish since 1989, and to be honest with you I don't see any improvement in the economy over the years I see severe decline.

However it is calm before the storm, get ready for massive crash, high unemployment.

They have a declining population, I doubt there's going to be mass unemployment.

Well, it can go both ways, declining population doesn't necessarily mean mass unemployment, however on the other hand as the population ages there will be less demand for services like (restaurants, bars, izakayas, cinemas). Older people tend to spend less on entertainment and focus more on staying at home and caring about their health.

I see severe decline.

I see housing, infrastructure and other standard of living indicators that are many times better now than in 1989. Tokyo and other cities are way cleaner and greener.

As a British politician remarked when he visited Japan in the late 90s: "If this is a recession, can we have some?"

My Nikkei fund has returned around 100% since I first invested in it 6 years ago. Not bad.

4.9% is better than going backwards, but disappointing for the worlds major markets. A lot of us had high hopes for 2021. Even as far as predicting Nikkei would test 35,000 by years end.

FTSE 100 is up ~ 13%

Dow Jones up ~ 20%

Making money before the war in Taiwan.

When China starts a war against Taiwan, it will definitely destroy the Japanese economy if people like Shinzo Abe think to intervene.

Y'all should profit something before the coming storm.

It was an artificial increase to create a perception of confidence and ensure certain executives get bonuses at the end of the year.

Congrats JeffLee. Someone feels bad about others’ success.
