You would think that a city that’s is almost all concrete would start to build around its existing trees and design with nature but no, money rules! If 700 old trees are cut down in Tokyo it’s absolutely no wonder rainforests are disappearing so fast. Why in earth has such a project been given the go ahead?!!!

Japan is showing the world that economic growth can be achieved with a falling population. The world is taking notes - and many nations may well follow suit.

Japan is living on wealth created in the past and had economic growth because of massive public debt funded investments. This does nothing to say that they have world class companies here for sure but the fact is that the domestic economy is definitely sucking on old money and when that will be gone and the bill of all that debt starts to come we’ll see what they’ll be showing the world

I love the part on funding sources lol a country that has a debt to gdp ratio of over 250% talking about funding sources lol it’s the usual pre election gimmick, throwing money around, that’s what the LDP has been doing for the last 70 years and that why we are in this financial mess and that’s also why everyone here without exception always expects handouts. People here have less children not so much because of money worries but because the working culture here is a libido killer and a child raising nightmare which no money in the world will change.

@Larr Fling, “The Hua A Mitsubishi UFJ Nikkei 225 ETF has seen its assets under management more than double this year to 123.5 million yuan ($17.52 million).” If they pull out those 18 million nothing absolutely nothing will happen… do you know what 18 mn even mean in an ocean of investment money? It’s basically nothing….

@justasking it’s the greed, China being basically a dictatorship gets things done faster so the investor could, at least until very recently, get stinking rich super fast. Now countries are realizing that it always was to end badly and want to change course but big business is still greedy, it’s always greed…..

Posted in: Japan egg prices soar amid record 16 mil bird flu cullings See in context

Ok, they got a bit more expensive but give me a break that the price of eggs is impacting family budgets. If the egg price has a negative impact on what you can eat you’ve been in dire straits before that. Which is hard, I agree. But don’t give me that line….most people here could t care less if 10 eggs cost 200 or 500

Posted in: Tokyo to demolish historic baseball stadium despite outcry See in context

I can't talk for Tokyo but here in Fukuoka one thing is absolutely certain, Japanese officials are against anything that's remotely green , ull stop. I counted myself over 600 trees that have been cut down in the last 12 months in my neighbourhood alone! The majority couldn't care less here. No one gives a sxxx about a tree. Green has no place in a Japanese city, it is a nuisance for most people here. It's terribly sad because summers here are total killers and shade would be very much appreciated but what you get instead is every inch concreted over. Man, I could go and on an.....

Very interesting and "social instability will become inevitable" is definitely true, this is a difficult issue to solve, almost impossible because of high debt (also globally), poor birthrates, social security burdens increasing and low immigration, especially high value, plus, with the LDP crew on the wheel, no chance

You don’t make children because you get money. When will Japan understand that money doesn’t solve every issue?! This might also be good to stop the growing massive debt here that’s now at over 250% of GDP. Stop throwing money around, as we can se it ha t solved anything in the last 20 years

It’s hard for China right now but one can’t feel a bit of schadenfreude because the FT reports that Chinese are leaving for HK and Macao to get the evil western rna vaccine…. Let’s just hope China gets through this without too much further pain.

Probably not, most schools here have even rules that give higher quotas of entry to male students even if they have much lower grades than female students. How can all this be constitutionally ok? Lucky my one goes to a private international school.

Posted in: Japan's stimulus plan must exceed ¥15 tril, says ruling party executive See in context

The economy will shrink, its demographics, but what would help is stronger immigration, increase interest rates bit by bit, decrease taxes for people below 5 million yen, zero for people below 2,5 million, increase taxes for all that make above 5 million and wack 60% on earnings over 50 million. New companies shokdl not pay any taxes for the first 6 years of earnings are not paid out but set back for future investments. Tax dividends and capital gains 50%, that’s all not productive money.

Disillusioned

is absolutely right, the train has left te station years ago, warming will be above 4 to 5 degrees, we cannot stop this anymore, however, we can do a lot to mitigate and drag it out as long as possible, but it's coming, no questions about it, the only ones not getting it are politicians, economists and Joe public

Posted in: Prices set to rise in Japan for over 10,000 food items on weak yen See in context

"earning the same as 2- years ago" it's not as black and white as many may think, Japan didn't have inflation for decades so it doesn't really matter that your salaries didn't increase, I came here in 1997 and honestly, only recently the eggs for example started to cost a little bit more than they did in 1997, compare that to Europe. Economics is never as black and whote. Also the weak yen is not alone to blame, it's the perfect storm of weak yen, broken logostics chain, raw materials at sy high prices and let's not forget the amazing profiteering of energy cmpanies like Shell and BP for example that are cashing in on it, that's the really disgusting part of it, they made already billions in profits this year and are telling us that we have an energy crisis

Simple way to get more people vaccinated, whoever got an invitation for a vaccination but didn’t show up and gets sick needs to pay 100% of medical costs and gets no sick money while off from work, guess we would be at 90-95% in a jiffy
