Repealing the sales tax and the ensuing downgrade will have long term repercussions for the young generations coming through, making inflation at three percent is quite standard for economies like New Zealand and Australia. This will force domestic consumption as cash will become tash if held and the lower yen will boost export receipts. Clearly his advisors should be strongly recommending the latter and the cost of foreign investment which not really appreciated in japan anyway.

Another reason why all interogations should be taped and lawyers present.

No such thing as parenting in this country, they leave up to the teachers. Drop them off at one year old and then just pay the bills. My sons 4 year old class mate came over the other day to play when asked what he had for breakfast he relied " cold left over french fries from last night". So the wife set about feeding him, she gave him some grapes later that day, first in his life. Guess what, his mother is a police woman.

@colby222, truth is good, people would move away which is good for the kids, might teach critical/crisis thinking skills to a lot of people who are sorely lacking or for the younger generation who will need it in the future.

While a Japanese diet is better than westerners in general, this blind thinking that the Japanese have about rice some times makes my blood boil. I have been told that "rice is good for brain", what a load of rubbish no better than a potato or a carrot. I found the following about rice. Refined white rice has a higher glycemic index than brown rice, meaning it breaks down into glucose much more quickly after being eaten than brown rice. Foods with a high glycemic index can increase the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, according to the Harvard School of Public Health. Brown rice takes longer to break down because it contains more fiber. A Harvard study showed that eating five or more helpings of white rice per week increased the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by 17 percent, while those who ate two servings of brown rice per week reduced their risk by 11 percent.
