What a crock of poo. The treatment of Ghosn is ludicrous. And now he'll have to ask permission from Uncle Abe to hold his own wife's hand? Totally normal...

Trump walked away in Vietnam wisely. L'il Kim has to show a brave face to his countrymen, but that won't get him anywhere with the US.

Posted in: Japan faces recession risks with dearth of ammunition See in context

Here's the reality; Keynesian theory is what has been the impetus for the many poor economic policy decisions in Japan since at least the 1960's. The ramifications of those decisions aren't clearly felt(usually) for a decade or more.

Regarding Abenomics, that's little more than the same actions taken after the real estate market bubble burst revisited. Abe devalued the yen by over 30% (great for exporters, but terrible for imports and the public, i.e. consumers who heavily rely on imported products). The saving grace for Abe has been the fortunate crash in the oil prices. If/when oil prices return to the $100 mark, there will be great pain.

And let's not forget that what drove the rush to Abenomics was the so-called Lehman Shock, itself the red-headed stepchild of MMT.

Face the facts; Abenomics is an abject failure because it is based on Keynesian tomfoolery. Raising the consumption tax again will inevitably have the same effect of pushing the domestic economy into recession again(same experiment = same results).

The BOJ have no tools for anything.

Because Stupid is as Stupid does. The economy will again dive deeper into recession because the fossilized brains only know one thing to do: raise taxes.

Ah. The ever-expanding nanny-state, of course supported by those who oppose individual liberty and responsibility. Next will be automatic throttle controls/limits and automatic steering = no driving.

Posted in: Over 20 dead in U.S. polar vortex; frostbite amputations feared See in context

There were similar Polar Vortex cold snaps in 1985 and 1996. Like this year, they occurred during Solar Minimum. I'm more inclined to think that Earth's weather is linked to the Solar activity (or lack thereof). But feel free to buy into the Climate Alarmist rhetoric. Even NASA reports that the atmosphere is cooling.

So, Abe and his synchophants still haven't learned the lesson that recession follows a consumption tax increase. Stupid is as Stupid does.
