It's all about keeping the faith :)

MMT is an experiment and Japan is most heavily MMT country. The Canary in the coal mine.

What happens in Japan will go viral in world.

I expect Trump to devalue the USD $ While Christine Legard will reset or bankrupt or whatever they call it out of debt issues. The next 2 years may be very wild.

The best any country can do is protect their ideas and businesses and take back those that migrated to maintain as much employment as possible.Japan is still the best quality maker in world but you let too much go to China and Korea.

Posted in: In Trump era, Europeans want a very different foreign policy See in context

USA should pull out of NATO and UN and let EU determine own fate and culture. Beside3s there may not be enough $ for all this in future what has become a great corrupt sharing of money supplied by US taxpayers. Every nation should assess what they can do for themselves as the globalist agenda is failing due to self centered agenda. Receding births and growth of GNP Japan is first to see these effects and is the Canary in the economic coalmine. Has MMT worked ?

Posted in: Japan's retail sales post sharpest fall since 2015 as tax hike hits demand See in context

So how many are shocked ? Of course and I think they will lose more taxes as higher tax with alot less buyers. We had same earlt 90s congress passed a luxury tax on highline autos, boats and other items. Americans stopped buying them, Many went out of business of overseas to manufacture lower costs so they got no income tax from workers loss too. Americans as they age are fleeing high tax states like NY, IL, CA and most of NE and West coast. Some states like New Jersey have exit taxes :) and they have almost non funded pensions taxpayers will bear soon. https://fee.org/articles/americans-are-leaving-states-with-high-tax-rates-data-show/

Posted in: Gov't says it is safe to release contaminated Fukushima water into ocean See in context

I'm still worrying about C02 :) to worry about this. So does this mean when I eat fish I will now along with all the mercury have to eat Radioactive Calcium, Iodine and Iron that will be absorbed by my body and stay in there for my life ? So whats to worry about they did not tell you about that cloud after Fukushima had what they called a hydrogen explosion with no mention of core meltdown causing water molecules to split and make hydrogen that went over Tokyo cause they thought OK too. They won't tell you that those isotopes like cesium strontium and others get absorbed into your body. Watch for big increases in thyroid cancer in next 10 years and remember why.

Posted in: Plastic bottles vs aluminum cans: Who'll win the global water fight? See in context

its kind of strange non can show me on any satellite map that giant plastic floating island 2-3x the size of Texas ?? Then they spend $$millions to send boats out to clean it up and none have heard a peep from them cause they can't find it either? I think its all a hoax and they often use photos in harbors of undeveloped nations where trash blew up. Besides most of Asia I see use plastic bags to hold fountain sodas.

Japan and America are quite clean nations and trash is well managed. So why do they keep pushing this on us instead of those nations that do pollute massively ?

If you want more inflation then put money in peoples pockets. Supply vs demand !

don't be surprised if deflation arises in near future especially raising sales taxes that will discourage purchases. https://youtu.be/h5-L2hoGkIc?t=3

Posted in: Japan to eliminate tariffs on U.S. wine in trade deal: Nikkei See in context

USA has greatly encouraged global trade with No or very low tariffs while there is little reciprocation globally. This has been the engine of China's miracle growth. US low on saving but big on buying products. Now US seeks some ability to sell in demand products to these nations. If you think Japan has given equal share then look around as it's so rare to see a US made auto but in USA over 25% autos are Japanese cars. And YES they are the most reliable cars in the world but USA makes some good ones too.

Posted in: Trump suggested nuking hurricanes: report See in context

Back in the 50s and 60s they wanted to Nuke everything and tried to also. They lit off nukes high atmosphere just to see how it might effect Magnetosphere. They also planned on building a new Panama canal by Nuking across the continent. Really ! look this up SCIENTISTS !!! Well I think this is why cancel so prevalent today. and those Nuclear power plants ? they cost more to build than they will ever save in electric production . But behind scenes they get funded from taxpayers and usually have cost overruns 20-50x. The money goes into pockets just like stadium buildings

Posted in: Starbucks vs two popular Japanese coffee shops: Which gives best value? See in context

Starbucks has gone to become factory food and drink style and quality. Coffee and step above 7/11 but nor worth the price. IMHO a French press or glass vacuum type brewer at home is cheapest and best flavor. On the street select best social and freshest pastries.

Posted in: King coal rules for power utilities in Japan See in context

The cleanest and cheapest electricity is HYDROELECTRIC . Nicolai Tesla and Westinghouse Co, built the first hydroelectric plant over 100 years ago at Niagara Falls on the Canada USA border by Buffalo NY. These plants are still there making cleanest cheapest power today. USA pays an average of .12 KWhr and Sweden also did the smart move using Hydroelectric https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/electricity-rates-around-the-world.html

All emigrants are welcome in USA as so many come in every year, But you have to come in legally as my wife did and it takes 6mo to a year. It's ez and you can do it yourself online. Anyone can come in a educational visa or tourist visa also. Many stay and lead productive lives and none are looking for these people starting Sunday. They are actively seeking criminal elements and those who are danger to society or illegally collecting govt programs.

Posted in: King coal rules for power utilities in Japan See in context

Until the Hydrogen economy blooms the best cleanest you can use is Natural gas. It burns in the same plants you burn coal in and USA has plenty to sell :) I'm sure Trump will get Japan a special deal and low price. USA lowered CO2 by 1/3 switching.

the Heanous part of coal is the fly ash that contains mercury that lands in the sea and eaten by microorganisms...that get eaten by small fishes ...that get eaten by larger fish and concentrated in that fish....that gets eaten by Tuna and Albacore that gets big dose of Mercury and why your fish full of large amounts of Mercury . BTW radioactive isotopes can also concentrate this way in biological paths
