All built on thin air so any such attempts will end in the same disastrous way.

To add.

They give it away so they can give to their pet causes and feel virtuous rather than paying properly and allowing workers to lead a better life.

Posted in: To mask or not to mask? G20 gathers nations with divergent COVID rules See in context

It is incredible that after all we have learned and with hard stats as to efficacy of masks, this debate still rages. Covid really did cause some form of mental dysfunction in our leaders (and, by extension, many of our fellow humans).

Posted in: Kuroda says BOJ will maintain easing, watch impact of global tightening See in context

Lunatic policy continues. All these developed economy central bankers are following this mantra - lost decade becomes lost 2 decades and now almost 3. Even with some of the others ẗightening, monetary policy is still far too loose. and likely to get looser as recession bites again.

The last decades of monetary policy coupled with fiscal indiscipline have ruined Japans prospects of ever getting back to some form of economic stability.

Central Banks are all manipulators. Why we can just let rates and exchange rates find their own levels based on economic activity etc is unclear to me. I guess governments cant help themselves and bureaucrats love the power.

Should take this moment of Russian weakness as an opportunity to take back Hoppo Ryodo. Not like Putin can point a finger given his invasion of Ukraine.
