Posted in: IMF urges BOJ to wind down monetary easing, gradually raise rates See in context

I am not sure if the IMF knows that if BOJ winds down the easing then you will see how inefficient the Japanese work system is.

Japanese economy became highly inefficient due to the easing, nowadays it takes few people to do one task in simple jobs because they all get paid minimum wage or 1000 yen.

Posted in: Japan OKs new foreign trainee program to attract more workers See in context

I'm surprised that foreigners still want to come to Japan.

Pay is low, YEN is cheap.

Long hours, harassment.

BUT good luck with your JAPANESE dream.

Nice, now you understand why I don't believe that digital currency, skin chips, etc. will be implemented in Japan.

The society is just too old, and won't understand how to more and more electronics.

Whoever wrote this article has very little to do with economics.

Seems like nowadays anyone can be a journalist if she or he can type on the keyboard.

For those who are fresh off the boat or who came to Japan recently (1-10years).

Avoid contacts with the police even if you saw something, that will end up badly for you.

You will always have problem with renting property as you will be constantly discriminated. "We can't rent to foreigners etc." Btw. This is the way to keep foreigners in ghettos.

Also when you are stopped by the police don't use Japanese the best thing to do is tell them you want to see your lawyer or call your embassy.

In fact, the appeal of working in Japan has been declining over the years for those from Vietnam, Nepal, Indonesia and China

Ohh my goodness Japanese people will have to finally go to work?!!?!?!

Of course, they won't, they will be trying to suck out the rest of the money from foreigners currently living in Japan by extra taxes etc.

"The population in Japan is declining, even more so in rural areas. Those are the places that need long-term non-Japanese residents who would be part of the community," 

Yes, non-Japanese residents who would FORM THE COMMUNITY. I bet all the Japanese would move to the city right away or to some other place.

I bet the future they want to create is foreigners in small villages, and Japanese in big cities. So if foreigners will want to move to a city like Tokyo they will need special permission.

Germany is already in electricity crisis. Prices has skyrocketed to almost €1,000 per megawatt hour. The electricity price has risen by 720% ytd. Such increases will bankrupt many energy-intensive firms.

Posted in: Japan July core consumer prices up 2.4%; biggest rise in 7.5 years See in context

I agree with Larr Flint.

Even if minimum wage would be 1000 yen, 2.4% inflation is roughly 24 yen. So the price of products went up by 24 yen.

The Japanese government recently hiked minimum wage by 30 yen so people still have 6 yen left!

Another State of Emergency can't be implemented, the government knows it as it would devaluate YEN even further and lead Japan to bankrupcy.

I think vaccine numbers 4,5 and 6 in some cases should be implemented.

Telework isn't the solution as someone still has to go to work at factories, restaurants, Caffe, someone needs to operate the metro etc. otherwise all those occupations will need to be reimbursed as well as companies for their losses.

I think a salary of at least 500 000 yen per month should do if you live in Tokyo.

Less than that will be just a painful experience.

Listen we are not going to close the economy again so everyone who is counting for another lockdown so they can stay home is wrong.

Japan will go broke if that happens.

Time to save economy and people at the same time.

Another stimulus.

Another jab.

Another quasi rules.

Another ban on travelers.

That is the new economy.

My new year resolution is no more BOOSTERS and jabs. Had two and I am not going to destroy my immune system with jabs every 3-6 months, especially since I am young and healthy (not obese).
