The US is unable to attract new recruits under the biden residency. Next year President Trump is back and will able to reverse this trend.

The yen is such a joke, 200 to the dollar and below is coming soon. Thank god that no one holds the pathetic joke currency apart from that needed for daily life. And the j authorities do nothing as they watch their “currency” collapse.

US bank are paying 5 percent on deposits on average ,why hold worthless yens

Exactly, who would hold the pathetic poisonous yen? Everybody I know has for a long time, kept their funds in US Dollars, Swiss Francs and Gold. Everyday I see the joke of a "currency" the yen dropping rapidly to the year's end expected 200 to the Dollar. I just laugh, the j "authorities" have absolutely no idea what to do. Just laughable.

I can't wait until next January when President Trump, the greatest President of all time, makes his return to rescue the country from the utter catastrophy of the biden residency. Aso is just getting ready for this great time to come.

I guess nobody comes from western countries to teach english anymore. As the yen is akin to the zimbabwe dollar, and “salaries” are as low as 150,000 yen a month, well you would have to be insane, to come to Japan,

Posted in: Japan says 'all options' on table to counter excessive yen moves See in context

These old gits say the same thing everytime. It is meaningless and has no power whatsoever.

Nobody keeps their funds in yen, apart from that needed for everyday needs. We all invest in US Dollars, Swiss Francs and Gold. Who would keep money in the zimbabwe dollar or the same thing, the yen. Your are just throwing your money away. The yen is a useless pathetic currency and by year’s end 175 to the dollar is being forecast where I work.

The Yen is collapsing even further against the US Dollar now. Now at 153!

How pathetic all this is, prices will just continue to shoot up. True inflation in Japan is around 12% and there’s no end in sight.

Who cares? Be 50,000, be 100,000. It is totally meaningless to the real economy and people’s struggling lives with huge price rises and stagnant wages.

The stock market is nothing but a rich man’s gambling club, like blackjack or roulette, backed by chinese money. The day will come soon when this particular bubble bursts, as they always do.

The return of the greatest President of all time Donald Trump to rescue our country. And biden in prison for bribe taking from China, Ukraine and Romania and for letting into the country over 15 million illegals.

But none of this applies to the English teaching in Japan does it). English teachers in Japan don’t give a jot about salaries, they don’t give a damn about the collapsing yen, they are just so thrilled to be in Japan.

But other groups of foreigners do care about money and the pathetic yen. With so many choices of countries, they will give Japan a miss.

Posted in: UK unveils tough new rules designed to cut immigrant numbers See in context

There is no point in trying to cut down on legal immigration when anyone who wants to, is simply allowed to enter the country illegally and be offered everything free. Just like the US now.

Posted in: UK unveils tough new rules designed to cut immigrant numbers See in context

All you have to do is come over to the UK from France on a boat or dingy, as thousands do every week. You are allowed into the country and given everything you need, money, nice hotel room, free medical and dental care, free new iphone etc. You don't have to bother anymore with minimum income levels etc. Just do what hundreds of thousands of people have done and will be doing for ever.....

Posted in: Premier League's slow slide into video review chaos far removed from FIFA vision for VAR in 2016 See in context

Scrap VAR, it is destroying the game. The excitement is lost when fans are waiting around for some minutes for the verdict. Let referees only decide on situations during a game as it used to be in the past. Sure referees are human and may make errors but these things tend to balance out over the course of a season.

At least in the Championship (league 2), where my team plays, there is no VAR and games flow nicely.

The only technology worth its salt is the goal line technology which determines whether or not the whole ball crossed the line.

200 yen to the Dollar? It's inevitable.

Posted in: Bank of Japan sticks to ultra-loose monetary policy See in context

The Yen is now trading at 149 to the Dollar. Once it successfully breaches the psychologically important 150 level, just watch it sink. Everybody should keep all their funds in a US Dollar account or some foreign exchange account if they have any interest in their financial health.

You don’t lose your pension or part of it if you are working.

Ah, I read that that was the case. Wallace, you are a pensioner sir? I stand corrected then.

We need old people over 65, if possible, to be working and paying taxes. But I heard that if an old person over 65 continues working, part or all of their pension, which they have contributed to all their working lives, is taken away. Not exactly motivating old people to work is it?
