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!

Elementary schools were closed today so it's get worse along with the hospitalizations. Wonder if this could be another undoing of a Japanese PM?

Woman in Japan are treated less to their male counterpart generally. This applies across the board

Posted in: Kishida pins hopes on wage hikes to accelerate wealth redistribution See in context

Wages won't grow because the Japanese economy and businesses are simply shrinking. Paying your unproductive employees more won't address the root problems.

Posted in: Japan seeks to have vaccine passports accepted by over 10 nations See in context

I question whether the J government understands the purpose of the vaccine passport enabling international travel going both ways. OR is it just something they see going on overseas and is trying to emulate without understand the true purpose.

The resumption of flights to Vietnam highlights Japan’s demographic aging and the economies reliance on cheap foreign factory workers aka technical trainees.

The Japanese people have seen no benefits. Abenomics is a big joke with money printing endangering the financial future of the nation. Abe knows nothing of economics as he's too focused on his family legacy, Constitional revision. The bigger the mountain, the deeper the valley.

Posted in: Another Japanese celebrity claims discrimination in France; netizens not so sympathetic See in context

Patrons in Japan never greet their servers which I think would exasperate the situation. Any time you enter an establishment in Europe, it's good manners to greet the staff. Japanese rare do this. Don't think it was racism either as the French are like this to everyone, particularly non French speakers.

Posted in: Abe faces battle on reforms despite big election win See in context

Abenomics is a joke. The only reforms we've seen from his administration are the interpretation of the constitution and the secrecy laws. With the record low turnout, i don't see this election as a fresh mandate but rather a waste of hLf a billion dollars for self perseveration. He a bot-chan. He's not interested in biting the hand that feeds him.

Posted in: Concerns growing within ruling party over weak yen See in context

What do you expect when your export business account for only 15 % of GDP. The weak yen has only helped the large multinationals which generate revenues overseas with repatriating profits. Corporate Japan! This government has no idea and is digging a deeper hole with all the printing and asset purchases. Artificially propping the markets with ReIT and ETF purchases. When Kuroda eventually will tapers due to BOj and JGB credibility issues, watch out DOOM day!

Posted in: Suga says Japan will keep on whaling, despite resolution See in context

I might agree with Japan if people were actually eating it. I can only assume some corrupt officials pockets are getting fat and this sham is to spite the west. Waste of tax payers money and puts a negative light on Japan.

The Japanese media were too optimistic to the point of setting unrealistic expectations for the Japanese public. Either way they tried their best.

Shame. 18 and 19 year olds are no longer kids and the fact that it was multiple incidences implicates the malicious nature. Ok maybe not prison but I hope something is done.

Can't believe they call themselves a research center. There are over a dozen things that could be done e.g. corporate governance and deregulations just to name a few. Hiring babysitters is NOT going to cure Japan's economic problems. Pathetic
