Rates have been manipulated by speculators since they have been floated. We know the speculators lead some countries near to bankruptcies. I have a strong doubt about the system of floating currencies. All the governments have rights to protect them from rogue speculators.

To bring historical problems back to attack other countries is not rational. For us what is important is future. It is silly to spoil the present and the future bringing back the past.

Is this emotional phenomemon peculiar to asia? Do people of countries which were formerly colonies of Britain, France, Spain, etc. continue to hate their controllers for such a long time? It is childish.

Was the Yen rightly evaluated until recently? I wondered why the Japanese yen was evaluated so high while the country's economy was dwindling.

It is very unsusual we see a Japanese personnel appears on BBC's HARDtalk interview program in which BBC's veteran inviewer sparrs vigorously with interviewee. Mr. Kuroda is the only Japanese, I remember, appearred on the program for the past ten years. Kuroda performed blamelessly with a command of English. I think it is a good choice. He is a brilliant man.

SchopenhauerFeb. 15, 2013 - 08:37AM JST
It is a right move. We realized we are helpless in dealing with rogue nations. We suffered a lot of "melanchory of impotents." Our peace constitutuion which was designed by America apparently aimed to make Japan an impotent country. We found U.S. Forces in Japan is not very useful despite we spend a lot for them. America did not take a strong stance to China over the Senkaku issue. It is miserable and a wrong idea that a nation depend its defense on other country.

Japan learned many good things from China historically. A big gap between the great culture of China and the recent babaric China puzzles me.

I think brutality by the Imperial Army is more or less true in the W.W. II. See the recent judo coach Sonoda's abuse scandal, our nature has not changed very much and reveals once in a while.
