Like it or not. I doubt it. It's manipulation. I don't see any growth. If Japanese companies can manipulate their earnings why can't JG?

Posted in: Japan's CO2 emissions drop to 5-year low in FY2015 See in context

Here there is nothing to brag about Japan achieving anything related to emission deduction.3% drop in 5 years, right? Simple calculation. 1% population decline.1% of the population got retired(no more active role).1% of them got into poverty who can't afford cars.Well done Japan.

Very bad decision from Japanese side. But the positive note is he is going to the country whose immigration policy is one of the toughest in Asia.Even tougher that Japan's.I met many many Japanese people who want to live in Thailand but can't.Japan is not attractive anymore for a good future.Good luck young boy.

The consumption tax rise two years ago hammered spending and pushed Japan into a brief recession.

Brief recession? No, prolonged recession and a kind of recession I have never seen before in my 30 years here in Japan.

I am a regular driver from 1993 and I have a gold license for more than a decade.I drive so safe that other drivers don't like me.Even pedestrians doubt me when I wait them to cross.

In all these years,I got parking tickets twice way back.
