Swiftly? I have not even received an application to apply for the first payment they promised. The only swift thing they have done is raise our taxes last year.

Many analysts, however, expect any additional spending to be fairly small given Japan's already huge public debt that is twice the size of its economy.

Is it REALLY debt when more than half of it is owed to yourself?

Swiftly? Happens for government friends tax payers swiftly means months of waiting? Got your masks yet? Got you check to donate for your rent yet? Bumbling old men bumble along. Rest of us have a life.

Got my money on the 8th applied for it on the 1st online. I say that is pretty swift, saved my business. Didn't need to close down, and didn't need to lay off my 1 staff member, myself. Thx stimulus for the free 2,000,000 yen. Stimulate more please!

I think that Japan is very weak to the foreigners' pressures, therefore, if you have complaints to the Japanese government, the public demonstration may be very effective.
