The technology is already there it's just too expensive. Japan famously excels at incremental innovation, so whilst I doubt we will see any revolutionary tech come out of Japan, I can certainly imagine Japan making the tech cheaper, and more efficient.

Prepare for some outrageous commets.

Male all toilets unisex, and build walls from the floor to the ceiling. Maybe more people would be tempted to wash their hands that way too.

Posted in: Japan mulls fully automated driving service in limited areas See in context

Automation is advancing at such a rate that driving a car, and even owning a car will become less necessary. Hopefully this will lead to safer roads, lower congestion, lower family expenditure, and lower levels of pollution.

How?

Option 1) Maybe he was stupid enough to leave the coins with an exchange.

Option 2) He left his seed phrase somewhere stupid

Option 3) Tortured

Posted in: Inflation a worry for most economies, but not Japan See in context

Over the last twenty years or so Japan has seen an increase in comodity prices and a decrease in average salaries. 

Is it time to introduce a universal basic income? As automation takes over, it isn't like there are going to be more jobs emerging.

Posted in: Inflation a worry for most economies, but not Japan See in context

I've noticed a 15-20% rise in prices at our local "commercial supermarket" over the last year. Also check the weight of stuff in your 100 yen shop. Definitely less for your 100 yen. So we do have hidden inflation.

Shrinkflation is real. At least here they arent increasing the prices AND decreasing the amount of product you get.

Posted in: Inflation a worry for most economies, but not Japan See in context

Its so funny that Nations actually persue inflation. Even after 30 years of trying Japan are still aiming for that mythical 2% annual increase. Maybe, just maybe, its time to try something else. Maybe let a few of those dinosaur companies die off to make room for more productive and efficient technology companies. Maybe Japan could be the first nation to embrace a technology-supported, shrinking economy. It makes perfect sense with the declining population.

The wording of this article.

Im assuming that this person is not American, becasue they weren't forced to quarantine, but "traveller from America", would suggest they want you to think otherwise.
