How are you going to pay for the tax cuts?

The way that Kishida and all the top dogs pay themselves, by printing yen.

And eliminating useless politicians as well as useless civil engineering projects to nowhere

Yes, firstly cut the sales tax in half or more.

Next eliminate half of these useless politicians. For example my city has 30 councilors making 7 million plus a year. 30! Our population is only 50k people!?

Then car shaken mafia scam, goodbye. 10k yen for inspection tops.

allow competition against the conglomerates in beer, liquor, meats, rice, leather

scrap the ridiculous college entrance rigamarole which kneecaps the best and brightest trying to enter uni !

for starters

I had a first year high school student from Western Europe visit my adult EFL class recently. He could participate 100% , nearly fluent with an accent of course. He said he’s studied 3 hrs. per week since elementary school. And he is average in his class back home.

What most people don’t know is that the 3 Gorges dam is the Achilles heel of China.

All Taiwan needs to do is target that dam and China is done, finished. So the threat alone of having short range missiles , cruise missiles , hypersonic missiles, pointed at it, and saying, “if we are attacked we will retaliate with all means necessary” should be enough to guarantee their security.

As we have seen in high profile cases of Japan’s antiquated laws, what is needed is a person of Aichan’s stature to pull this kind of stunt on a equally high profile British or former colonial personality. Then their media jumps on it and Japan is shamed into action.

Posted in: Markets skeptical whether BOJ will change ultraloose policy See in context

If they raise the rates they have to literally print money and bonds to cover the debt of the bonds coming due. Which is what they are doing now and getting away with it. However there comes a point where the big money will bail out of the bond buying scheme, then the public will catch on as the wheels come off the bus
