Sure throughout history most of us were dirt poor. Humans have always chosen kids. They are no longer, it seems. This runs deeper.

We've made it all to complicated so it's easier to get a pet dog.

Japan is going end up being a country filled with elderly because mass immigration will never happen.

A society without young people is one without a future. Japan needs to prioritize sorting this out above all else.

Think about, anything done now wouldn't bear any fruit for another 20 years. This needed fixing in the 90s or 00s.

There's literally nothing they can do apart from let in millions of immigrants...

Exporters in japan are also gaining from this weak yen .That’s how it should be… more of Japanese products being exported is even better for the Japanese economy . We should get rid off Made in China products and get back using Made in Japan products which are far more better quality than China

Yes, get those over 75s into the factory now.

Not that I want to see all the tourists back, it is obvious that the yen isn’t going to stop its free fall until demand increases and most domestic consumers are being bled dry or are already tapped.

Yen's weakness is caused US interest rates being high and Japanese near zero. The US will keep raising rates this year and next too, so the yen is not going to regain its strength. Tourism is puny.

My in-laws aren't complaining about inflation. So I'm not sure Japanese are suffering that much, they just went be holidaying in the US as much.

Time for Japan to cash out and sell the $1.212 trillion in US treasuries being held.

What's stopping them liquidating all that?

50,000, what are they going to do with that? They probably need that every month.

The yen is taking a battering 1USD 143Y today. Japan going to raise interest rates?

These stories will never go away until Japanese society and culture changes, and we all know how long that takes.

Their culture is not going to change by definition, it's their culture.

Posted in: Brazilian who fled Japan wanted over murder of wife, 3-year-old daughter See in context

I cannot imagine stabbing a toddler. Why couldn't he just fly to Brazil before killing anyone.

Probably he killed his wife in a rage over an argument, my guess is money or an affair. She was stabbed 10 times and beaten which is particularly violent. Then he couldn't escape leaving the child alive.

Should get the death penalty.

Can anybody explain this strange lack of effort to be factually accurate regarding Japan in the Western media?

Perhaps it's based on stereotypes.

But who in the West reads Japanese daily news?

its ironic that Japan finds 2% inflation too difficult while the rest of the world has this amount of inflation almost every year.

Also that they've been trying to engineer inflation for decades and now they have it.
