SaikoPhyscoJAN. 17, 2017 - 11:52AM JST Just keep printing it Japan.... why not, the Yen, no how matter how much they print... isn't getting any weaker. If I were head of the BoJ... I'd print Trillions of Yen and buy Gold and Silver with it... why not buy a tangible commodity with it? You buy yourself into the richest nation in the world on the back of a printing press.

I wonder if you went to high school.

Smithinjapan & speed,

You guys are right. If I don't mistake I think there was touch technology here even in the 90s in Sushi shops. Another thing apart from introducing smartphones earlier, Jcompanies missed contract manufacturing.
