Lets be honest guys what it will change if there is going to be a state of emergency. Nothing really. People will pretend that they need to go to their work because its "significant" . Well unless you are working in a food factory, grocery store。、

Guys it will be a big depression. Many people is going to lose their lives not because of corona virus but what will come after unemployment, poverty etc.

Instead of blaming each other how the country was ruled it's better to focus what we can do. Let's start building a new future!

Posted in: 'Corona unemployment' leaves many at a loss, especially some new recruits See in context

Well of course unemployment will be here for a while. Get ready for at least a year and after that it will get better.

To be honest I am actually happy for new grads that they will not get hired or they got recently fired. Japanese work system is bad, just get hired in big corporation and do nothing for next 40 years get money. Well I hope they will build something new, something better for themselves and future generations. It is going to be a rough lesson but this is the last call.

Yeah I have that feeling that big unemployment is coming up.

If you don't have job or you lost it you still have to pay nenkin! So I'm just curious before I lose my job is government going to help??

Kurisupisu Im sorry to hear that you are in difficult situation but it's not going to be any better, just worst for all of us.

Posted in: Japan's Feb jobless rate flat at 2.4%; virus impact yet to appear in data See in context

Two things are bound to happen. Either the pandemic will explode, killing thousands of people, or before that happens Abe will have the belated good sense to call for a national emergency.

Nothing like that is going to happen. This virus started in December now we have April. If it would be really strong a lot of people would already die, especially in Tokyo which had many Chinese tourists. I believe many of us already had it or have it. I know you guys like to follow that story about virus, pandemic etc. and mass media will feed your fears.

Anyway I believe Abe is right in this case. You have to think about how economic downturn of shutting down like US or Europe will affect future. Someone said that Corona virus will kill few which is bad but you will see what will happen after, when poverty, unemployment, economic depression will kill more than this flu like virus.

Posted in: Japan considers one-year grace period for corporate taxpayers hit by virus See in context

As usual big corporations will get tax discount / cancellation / grace period. People working in financial institutions will get dividends. And all that will come from regular Taro pocket. Nice nice.

Posted in: SoftBank to sell up to $41 bil in assets to buy shares, reduce debt See in context

Well we all know that.

Government wants to be in power so every time when Big Corporation is on the edge they will bail them out. If people would get fired government would lose support.

Big Corporations knows they will be supported by government so they dont care about taking risk. Stocks, retirements plan etc. just take risk to make more money.

Banks want to keep system in place because they are in control of Corporations and Government. If one of them has a problem they are bailed out by BoJ that can print so much money its unbelievable.

They all know that regular people will pay the price, actually middle class will pay. Rich will not get poor. Poor or homeless doesn't have anything so you cant get a dime from them. Just the middle class and their lifetime savings being untouched for now on their accounts.

The end is coming soon.

I don't think there will be bankruptcy. BoJ will print money to bail them out. Same as in America in Europe.

Posted in: Sales tax cut emerging as option as gov't battles coronavirus fallout See in context

Exactly Rosalind! Even if there will be sales tax cut there is no money to buy anything.

Secondly even if government will "inject" all that money to economy or let's say they will hand over your salary for the time you spent at home it's not going to help. Do we really think that after that two weeks everything will go normal as it was? Business will still be affected for long time.

People won't start travelling right away as they barely survived coronavirus so they will need to save money, you won't buy cars, electronics. So this measures won't help. I mean you can do the sales tax cut anything this is the beginning of new economic system.

Posted in: Sales tax cut emerging as option as gov't battles coronavirus fallout See in context

Too little too late. If people don't have jobs because companies fires them then tax cut won't help because no-one is going to buy anything than rice.

And all that money that you will "inject " into the big corporations won't help as well.

Posted in: Doubts growing in Japan over Tokyo Olympics See in context

Hmm interesting just 9 minutes ago on CNN.com I read that:

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said today that he "secured support" from G7 leaders to hold the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in their "complete form,” which would provide "proof that the world has contained coronavirus."

What I heard in the culoars that there will be a state of emergency declared in the upcoming week, maybe as soon as Monday-Tuesday.

And mask on Hachiko is so irresponsible.

Posted in: Coronavirus crisis taking its toll on Japan's tourist industry See in context

Actually most of the Japanese people believe in the Japanese government who is in charge of Bank of Japan. Whenever situation like that occurs big corporations and hotels will be supported by money from BOJ per government request.

Many of my colleagues work for big hotel chains and they still work full time even though there are very few customers. And they don't worry completely as money will come from BOJ (you can actually Google it - money stimulus).

As someone mention before going into debt to show off by Japanese is not a problem. There would be a problem if Bank of Japan would lose a trust internationally but then all central banks would be in troubles which means global crisis.

Therefore it's actually is our way or no way!

Posted in: Abe says gov't will announce more measures on March 10 to counter virus See in context

Next step will be a temporary lock down the country. Joke.

What he really will announce is that Bank of Japan (BOJ) will be printing more money 24/7 which will be pumped into the economy as a stimulus for businesses that were affected by coronavirus.

I guess what government doesn't realise that even if they will do that and let's say outbreak will be gone in April. Tourists won't come back right away and that Olympics are doomed anyway. NO ROI! It's over Japan but also I guess it's over for word economy.

Make sure you won't give them your full name unless you want to have troubles with visa renewal or your PR extension.

If not right away then in the future.

Posted in: Japan to ban entry by foreigners who have visited Daegu See in context

Hmm I would say ban the entry for all foreigners how we can distinguish if one had been to this place or not.

In your passport it's only indicated you entered the country not which places you went to.

This plan won't work because as Abe said about Sakura party. They don't have a digital copy of people that attend the party, plus some handicapped guy shredded the last physical copy.

So now how you imagine working from home and have all that evidence on the internet.

GDP by sector

Agriculture: 1.1%

Industry: 30.1%

Services: 68.7%

(2017 est.)

Well almost 70% work in services according to Wikipedia!

I hope the other 30% can carry the rest during the crisis!
