JET and the whole English teaching thing is a massive scam. How can the government or anyone keep splurging into these when even until today barely anyone speak English ? These are just vanity projects to bring le exotic hakujin into the country.

Japan is the darling of global investors these days, due mostly to its corporate performance

You're confusing Japan Inc and Japan the country. Companies Warren Buffet invests in don't necessarily do business in Japan. In fact more likely than not they don't make money from Japan.

Posted in: Japan denies Biden claim he influenced its defense budget increase See in context

America is going to throw Japan under the bus like they did Afghanistan, Ukraine, and quite recently Taiwan. So in that regard it's true they influenced Japan's military budget.

Japan really needs to learn from other western countries on how to treat asylum seekers.

Like The UK, which brib.. er, struck a deal with Rwanda to keep them there. Or Germany which did the same with Libya and Turkey. Or Australia with Nauru. Or the USA which sends them all over the place from Mexico to Martha Vineyard.

Posted in: Japanese gov't spent ¥6.35 tril to bolster yen in October See in context

What is the appropriate rate for yen ? One dollar for 100 yen ? One yen for 100 dollar ?

No let's leave it to the market to decide.

The market did that.

Then people cry why is it so cheap ?? Do something.

And we're back at square one.

By interest rate you mean THAT interest rate ? The money you give the bank when you take a loan from them ??

I wonder if Japan, you know the country with the largest debt on earth, had to start paying it ?

They intervened again this morning. Lasted only a few minutes before the gains were wiped out.

That would be $20 billion. Thank you come again.

Posted in: Analysts see more room for yen's fall as BOJ stands pat on policy See in context

The funny thing is that cheap Yen has been what Japan wants all along. Now they get it no one knows what to do. Boosting manufacturing and export ? Unlike before, today everyone from China to Vietnam is also making the same thing and one reason fuel prices go up is because they all also buy it for their own economies. Can Japan compete for resources, more importantly for brains ?

Japan should really explore being a Thailand. So what if the economy depends on tourism ? We all know the country is shrinking so instead of insisting on a revival better focus on soft-landing.
