The unfortunate reality is that Japan borders must be closed again and my coworkers waiting to enter the country must give up.

Your children and grandchildren will pay for this debt.. but who cares about more bonds when a country is already drowning in them anyway.

Did they not learn for the past 30 years that printing more money solves nothing?

Big corps and banks absorb everything.

This is the perfect time to make immigration of skilled workers even harder, right.. because the way it is now, good professionals are choosing South Korea, Australia, China... waving goodbye to Japan.

Doesn't make any sense.

In my company there are several engineers waiting for permission to enter the country. And the bureaucracy is absurd, now that they are advertising border opening, it's not open at all. For the average people, you can even be detained for several days for trying to enter Japan and if you don't cooperate they can remove your residence status, the virus used as excuse.

This is all politics, the USA is the biggest Covid focus ever, but Japan impose less restrictions than on other countries such as UK. we all know why.

Posted in: Whenever you read about random knife attacks in public places or on trains, does it make you more attentive to what people around you are doing when you are walking along the street, waiting on train platforms, aboard trains or shopping? See in context

Never give your back to people on trains.

Stay standing and backs glued to the wall. If anyone has a knife, cover your hands / arms with a coat or shirt if you have no option but fighting for your life.

Buy a foldable iron rod for self-defense.

World wide, deaths surpassed 5 million officially. The real numbers are much more than that, because many are not reported. Mathematical models suggest pandemic lasting for next 6 years, given current vaccination rates, Japan will not open borders any time soon.

I have never understood and will never understand WHY the world decided to give China so much money and global influence, knowing very well their ideologies and pretensions. They have been plotting moves for communism to dominate the world for the past 40 years and the whole world just got along with it.

As I've said here in April, I bought stocks in March covid crash... I was expecting to see a return by 2025, I still can't believe I have made so much money in just a few months. From a crashed market to a massive bubble in the blink of an eye. This is crazy!

Too bad animators in Japan live below the poverty line. Jobs give no benefits, no insurance, majority have to live with other animators in community houses to cover basic expenses.

Funerals are becoming exponentially expensive. These cases often happen for fear of not being able to afford a proper funeral and person involved enters a spiral of despair ultimately unable to take any decision or action. When my time comes I will probably donate my body to science to avoid leaving my family to deal with this hurdle.

In the name of financial profits and political "power" these politicians and their military arm threaten the future of the entire planet. The scientists who helped to develop these weapons lived the rest of their lives in depression and shame.

Who are these "private creditors"

The Federal Reserve and the International Monetary Foundation.

They are all private, not owned by USA's government. They tell the Treasury how many dollars should be printed.

In February I said here people who were positive to C19 was eating at restaurants and posting on Instagram, and I for one would quarantine myself...

If Warren Buffett taught the world anything it is that this is one in a lifetime opportunity to enter the stock market as an investor.

If the world doesn't end, around 2025 the investment from now will turn into huge profits. If the world ends you won't have to care about the lost money anyway.

Since March 23 I have moved over 60% of my patrimony from savings account to shares.
