According to the attached article, 16% of Korean households in Japan receives pubic livelihood assistance. I think that some angry Japanese may request reduction of it, unfortunately. Although its realization is very low, they may insist Japan has been paying too much money to Koreans.

A growing number of Japanese people will hate Koreans, unfortunately.

At least Lebanon report their numbers correctly.
Although the Covid-19 is not related with this article,
I think nobody has confidence that Lebanon has reported the numbers correctly. (not only Lebanon but also the other countries. Recently, I read the article that the new data tripled Russia's Covid-19 death toll.)
In this situation, I think we should focus on the numbers of excess fatal. Maybe, this comment will be erased due to the off-topic rule.

I am very sorry to bother you, however, my comment is mainly based on the opinion of Japanese lawyer (Mr. Tsunehiko Maeda). If you can read Japanese, you will find his comment in the attached article.

I would like to know whether increase of suicide in Japan during the pandemic is particular or not, comparing with the other countries. However, I read the following sentence in the article of CNN recently.
"Japan is one of the few major economies to disclose timely suicide data -- the most recent national data for the US, for example, is from 2018."
Is this true ?

I think non-indictment is possible, if this case is related with his first arrest, only property damage and the certain tolerable conditions. The certain tolerable conditions means low drinking amount, alcohol concentration and more. However, penalty point in driving license is apart from non-indictment. Anyway, I would like the prosecutors to reveal the reason of non-indictment not only for this case.

It is ironic that total death toll in 2020 is less than that in 2019 because of the Covid-19.
Jan.-Oct.2020 : 1,133 k
Jan.-Oct.2019 : 1,147 k
(so: vital statistics)
Especially, death from pneumonia decreased drastically. The experts analyze the main reason comes from measures against the Covid-19. (wearing masks and washing hands)
However, death from the Covid-19 will increase from now on.

I think English translation of this article is not accurate. "Assets" should be "financial assets". I think most Japanese understand saving money is not good for economy, however, it can be helped, considering their long post-retirement period and many natural disasters. Anyway, as household financial assets in Japan are mostly held by the elderly generation, the Japanese government may earn huge inheritance tax in the near future.

Takeda is developing the drug for Covid-19 and the reporter should have asked him about its progress.
By the way, I would like Mr. Christophe Weber to raise the share price of Takeda much more. The trend of share prices after his succession of the president are as follows;
(2014/6/E → 2020/12/18)
Takeda : 4,699 → 3,877
Otsuka : 3,140 → 4,479
Astellas : 1,331 → 1,539
Daiichi-Sankyo : 1,890 → 3,333
Nikkei Average : 15,162 → 26,763
Very bad result for the shareholders of Takeda so far.

Frankly speaking, I think most German are not so interested in this issue.
According to the investigation of BBC in 2017, view of S. Korea influence in Germany is as follows;
Mainly negative: 32%
Mainly positive :11% (worst in the investigation)
The rest may be not so interested in S. Korea.
Germany was the worst country for S. Korea from the viewpoint of positive assessment based on the BBC investigation.

Although the ad is not a big thing, I think that those who dislike the ad dislike hypocrisy of Nike. They consider Nike touched the sensitive matter for its sales promotion. However, if Nike makes the ad of Chinese bulling to Hong Kong, Mongolia, Uighur and Tibet, they will know Nike is not a hypocrisy company.

Sell --- Japanese individuals and GPIF
Buy --- Foreigners

In the Covid-19 era, concept of human rights fluctuate and fragile. I often think of the below.
The countries whose average length of lives are short --- human life value is relatively low.
The countries whose average length of lives are long --- human life value is relatively high.
Considering the Covid-19 death tolls of each country, human life values (or rights to live) of some countries may be relatively low.

As a joke, some Japanese say Ghosn should have stayed in Japan, considering the Covid-19 and social unrest in Lebanon. The prison of Japan may be safer than his luxury house in Lebanon. Anyway, I hope he will be always happy because he was a excellent chairman who had revived Nissan for Japan.

As you indicated, the exit strategy is quite difficult after too much purchases of the BOJ. Some analysts think the BOJ may sell the purchased EFT to Japanese individuals with the certain discount, although nobody knows the feasibility.
By the way, now Japanese individuals have enough money to purchase stocks after selling their stocks in November and TOB of NTT Docomo. TOB of NTT Docomo will generate cash of JPY 4 trillion in the next week. If the share prices tumble, they may purchase the stocks aggressively again.

Investment trends by investor type in November are as follows; (till the second week)
Foreigners : Net purchase of JPY 741 billion (only the spot, if including the future, net purchase of JPY 2,160 billion)
Individuals : Net selling of JPY 1,119 billion
Surge of Nikkei index in November has been caused by purchase of the foreigners. Individuals seem to think the present situation is small bubble and continue to sell their stocks. On the other hand, the foreigners may overestimate the present Japanese economy.

In order to reduce the total death toll from the Covid-19 and suicide, I think the "Go-to" campaign should be limited only for the young people. And the Japanese government should ask the elderly people for staying home as much as possible for a while. We see so many elderly people go out for their leisure.

I will not say this is good or bad. It just makes me standing in awe on how the current Nikkei is only a half of what it was in 1990s.
The highest Nikkei index ever is JPY39,000 and the current one is not a half, although the component of the present Nikkei index is different from the one in 1990s. If possible, please make an accurate comment. Anyway, Japan's GDP has not changed at around JPY 500 trillion in a long time without growing.
The highest of total fair values of the first section of Nikkei index in 1990s --- JPY 591 trillion
Today --- over JPY 660 trillion
