quote of the day

You have decided de facto to have a declining standard of living because your debt goes up every day and your population goes down every day.


U.S. investor Jim Rogers, chairman of Rogers Holdings and Beeland Interests Inc. who founded the Quantum Fund with George Soros in the 1970s. He warned of a stark future for Japan if it does not take drastic measures to curb its massive debt and severe population decline.

I wouldn't recommend investing here. Even though you don't here it this way anymore, Japan is still in post bubble and we are now 30 years in. The LDP isn't going to get things in order and the Japanese view the other parties as too weak to vote for. By choice Japan is essentially a one-party system.

Abe and all the LDP scums will spend spend spend this country into the ground.

I can't even begin to tell you about all the unnecessary concrete they've laid down all over this beautiful archipelago that I've personally seen.

Maybe a bit more equal sharing of the wealth could be considered, no?

Well, that is probably not the first idea in Soros' mind...!

On the other hand, fewer persons inheriting great wealth.
