Hey, here's an idea, how about we bring down tax consumption to 0% for a year ? give normal people a boost once in a while, not just the guys with assets.

Posted in: Canceling Tokyo Olympics would cut Japan GDP growth by 1.4%: estimate See in context

Poor Abe, waited too long to save GDP from tourism. Now he won't be able to save GDP from the Olympics either and got blamed for everything. A perfect analogy to releasing a captured bird, to go after the two around the bushes, and lost all birds.

I hope the "shame" of getting stared at and shunned would convince people to stay home, but I guess they fear more their kacho's scorn.

Okay, so we have giant windows at every floor in the office, but every single one of them is blinded. I ask if I can open the blinds, atleast for the windows near me. Management said that "no, some people get distracted by sunlight coming in" ... yeah !?!? Well, I guess that's why you bought all these "natural" neon lights instead huh ?!

Put all your eggs in a basket, rely on China for everything, manufacturing things, tourism, etc. this is what you get. I hope people realize this fast! South East Asia is pretty much untapped, it's time to switch partners Japan.

Posted in: Japan is an anomaly among developed economies. The era of coal is ending, but for Japan, it’s proving very difficult to give up an energy source that it has relied on for so long. See in context

You want plans for our green economy ? We built an LNG powered tanker to get our beloved Aussie's coal, to power up our photocopy machines and fax those excel documents for you okay ? You have no fax ? we have lots for sale!

Productive land and farming skills are the only real valuables in times of troubles. Follow that with gold, lots of bullets and guns.

Posted in: James Bond producer rules out female 007 See in context

I don't want a female 007 that solve problems just like the male 007, shoot/punch/kick first then explosion. A female 007 would solve problems silently, through trickeries and deceptions, which then may end up with giant explosion.

Posted in: Your money or your life: Can nations prosper by putting well-being before GDP? See in context

What matter is GDP when your population live in stress, depression and anxiety ? Fear of losing jobs not because they're lazy, but because there are forces like automation, shifting economic climate - that they can't control - forcing them out, without safety net to bounce back.

Posted in: Nissan has to decide whether it more interested in pursuing Ghosn or fixing what's wrong with the company. It has already proved that it can't do both. See in context

"Fixing what's wrong with the company", LOL. Every Japanese companies I've worked at don't think there's anything wrong with their company, it's just the foreigners who don't understand the Japanese people's "peaceful ways".

A shame really, Nissan Leaf is about the only decent and affordable electric car in Japan. If Toyota comes up with something similar (which they probably can't, since the Keidanren probably wouldn't allow it), Nissan is done.

I saw on TV some combini put soon-to-be-expired food on the internet, but take them off shelves. People check it through an App, and buy it for 50% off.
