While it might not directly affect a decline in population, the COST for supporting seniors in Japan is already a MASSIVE expense & increasing daily, SO that pressure financially on young people if they eve bother to marry will mean LESS kids!
BTW this is ALREADY happening & has been for a few decades, just saying

Japan has for more than 3 decades running done basically NOTHING about making farming more efficient & profitable, so it only has itself to blame, the problems Japan faces have NOTHING to do with the TPP
Its only that the TPP is whats happening now is al!
Also JA is an albatross around farmers necks, a lot of them are trapped by JA
I live on yama above rice fields & all the farmers are 60+yrs of age, their little plots often are not even side by side but scattered all over the place
Bottom line is Japan is doing this to itself!

Agreed any apology from abe would be fake & super obvious tatemae move!
Which is why on this highly important anniversary that abe step down & let the emperor do the speech
Its been highly embarrassing reading all the articles on the preparation of his speech, mind numbingly painful to read about the sheer idiocy going on behind it
And today I the Japan News I read about another idiot tomomi inada, policy chief on wanting to educate the world on the sex slave issue or rather try to tell us its all a lie.
Its scary how inept the ldp are & their inability to read how the world see's Japan wrt WWII etc!

BP well out at 10:21!
I don't expect to be treated better when I go home but I also don't want to be treated like a possible criminal either, well put that many expats often do MORE for their home countries than residents!

Thx! Yeah its looking less & less like I would ever contemplate returning, pretty bad when your own country looks fleece its own when they return! I am all for fair but govts are going to be making our lives more & more miserable I think as time goes on, & they CAN take away our passports effectively standing people OUTSIDE their country & then likely becoming an ''illegal" where they have been living in our case Japan.
With the economy being more global I think countries need to be much more reasonable with us pee on's moving here & there once in a while!
Its not like we are like APPLE hiding billions in Ireland or something!

Ok..................BUT considering Japan 70yrs after WWII still CANT figure out & admit what happened..................its a bit much to ask the world to plegde etc
Hiroshima & Nagasaki are already pretty well known & understood, Japan & WWII on the other hand ..... the world still waits

Would be interested it what ways RC went after you, without getting very specific of course.
I have been outta Cda now over 2 decades but have essentially nothing back home except an account with about $2000 & I think its been de-activated as I haven't done anything with it. I have wondered about investing some back home, property at times, but sounds like it would give RC ammo to skin you alive if you ever returned likely nailing your assets as new income & taxing the hell outta ya!
I will says its pretty disheartening the way many govts are now treating their expats, just regular folks, not those that are cheating & hiding $$ etc, at times I almost feel like a criminal for having the gall to live in another country!

These "swimming pools" with MASSIVE overcrowding are very unsafe, where I am from they would never allow numbers like that in a pool very dangerous
And of course nasty to boot, no way in hell you would catch me at one of these cesspools.

Its a tad more complex than that & I don't do a whole lot of the crap on the net, keep it pretty simple but its CLEAR as soon as someone is online doing anything BIG DATA is sucking you dry & selling your A$$ for $$$$

Sounds like at least some creators are getting a chance to make a few bucks............so maybe that's good
Honestly I am getting pretty sick & tired of being spied upon where ever travel on the web & other racking in the ca$h based on spying on everyone, theses idiots are killing their golden gooses
And I just hate being spied on & recorded by every damned site I might visit & then the browsers that be SPEW their recommendations
