I guess they can print as much money as they like and suffer no ill effects. The BIG question is why do they bother with taxes ???

Yes, they can, until inflation becomes a threat. That's what they've been doing for ages already with basically no risks.

The authorities create our money and then take portions of it back depending on their economic goals. For example, taxes are used for income distribution as well as for adjusting prices/inflation.

As part of efforts to prevent massive power outages, the government will also help introduce private power generation facilities and power-saving systems.

Like all the renewables that would get Japan off nuclear? Irony

Just my opinion, but seems to me that investing in infrastructure is a very good idea, which pays dividends far into the future.

I applaud the effort but it never should have gotten to this, those walls were illegal and it seems things where not properly built or safety considered in the first place when it comes to rivers and airports.
