Yay for the bankers? As usual the market has no correlation at all with actual economic fundamentals.

Posted in: G7 says Japan playing by currency rules See in context

Indeed they are: the rules at the moment are currency debasement. Any major country that says they aren't doing it are lying. Pity any of us who actually live a prudent life and save money though, as they're trying to inflate us all into oblivion.

It's only a matter of time until the human infestation (there's no other word for it with 7 billion of us) receives a proper malthusian event. Not sure if this will be it or not, time will tell.

@thepersoniamnow this one was a richter 6 AND a shindo 6.

Kind of like all of Japan, sadly.
