Posted in: To allow women to work to their full capacity, we will have to bring in people from Southeast Asia to help with childcare and housework. See in context

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

Forget it Japan. Stop wasting America's time and focus on reforming your bloated LEACHING agricultural system.

No surprise. Japan wants their cake and eat it too. Too many long established vested interests. As the third largest economy with so many multinationals it's a shame as their is so much potential. Apparently tradition in Japan means no change.

Posted in: IMF cuts Japan growth forecast; issues warning over Abenomics See in context

Abenomics's allure stemmed from long awaited structural reforms. QE and dismal fiscal spending is far from enough to pull Japan out. The Japanese equity market is limp along with quality demand side inflation. It's no surprise as foreign investments flee

Posted in: U.S. steps up pressure on Japan to make good on trade promises See in context

I read a lot about how Japanese food and autos are superior to that of overseas. I'm not arguing whether that's true nor accurate but if that was, why not open up the markets? Let the consumers decide!

Cut taxes for corporations and tax the people.

Posted in: Osaka city assembly refuses to accept Hashimoto's resignation See in context

They should be asking him to resign. Wasting tax payers money on an election which proves nothing since he would win out of default.

Posted in: No. of suicides drops below 30,000 for first time in 15 years See in context

Suicide is not on the decline. In Japan, a suicide is only a suicide upon examination by a medical examiner aka a doctor. Otherwise, it is not. The reported cases of suicide is inaccurate due to the over burdened healthcare system. Either way, it's very sad.

A death sentence for North Korea, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

Posted in: Contractor refuses to provide school lunches when faced with radiation checks See in context

Essentially they've been serving contaminated radioactive food to all those kids and teachers. This is a crime. What is worse is that they're not investigated or doing anything about it.

Oh yea, JA accounts for roughly 5% of Japan's GDP. I suppose I don't have respect in allowing them to hold Japan hostage in their interest!

Posted in: U.S. says Japan must negotiate on rice to join TPP talks See in context

Open Minded :

Farming is agriculture and is an industry, I don't know anything about landscaping in Japan but I do know they receive government subsidies which come from the pockets of tax payers.

I also know, the amount of subsidies they receive depends on the amount they produce or rather, DON'T produce. Where is the sense economically in that? Farmers receive more to produce less.

Oh yea, how do you defend an industry who struggles to survive with a 800% subsidy? LOL

Japan needs to stop kidding itself as new markets are desperately needed for it's overpriced priced products. Japan needs this more than America, and America knows that! The days of having your cake and eating it too, are over. Anyways, it's up to Japan to decide!
