Cut wasteful spending before raising taxes. Blows my mind to see no cares that supplement budgets being used up in Feb / March by constructions companies annually.

Yes, debt and fiscal responsibility does matter. People need to wake up to the alarming deterioration of economy and country as a whole. Waiting and hoping for the best is not a solution.

Stagflation is a real issue in Japan. BOJ needs to acknowledge the problem and Kuroda needs to pop the bubble he's created. BOJ has lost all credibility.

Raise interest rate to return BOJ/Japan's creditability. Zombie companies need to die in order for resources and capital to be properly reallocated. The rest of the world is passing Japan by.

Posted in: Business sentiments cool as cheap yen, costs weigh on Japan See in context

Debt does matter. Printing money and artificially keeping interest rates low to fund unproductive companies and government spending comes at a cost. Stagflation at best, financial crisis at worst

Good luck! No one in their right mind would want the position. Kuroda should exit his monster QE policy before handing it off.

Posted in: Monetary tightening not suitable at all: BOJ chief Kuroda See in context

History repeating itself. Kuroda refuses to pop the bubble he created and continues to devalue the yen while the rest of the world tightens. Playing with fire

Posted in: Bank of Japan hikes inflation forecast on soaring energy prices See in context

A decade of money printing and weak economic fundamentals is devastating the yen. Looks like a possible financial crisis and stagflation in the pipeline if they don't take action. Doing more of the same will only result in more of the same.

Self inflicted through a decade of money printing and pumping up asset prices. China's economic slow down and worsening trade deficit will make 2022 a not so good year!
