From my investment experiences, it is very difficult to make profits on stocks. I would rather choose consumser tax at 25%.

If Softbank has money to invest, they should invest in their communication networks. If you go to country side, there still remain places difficult to communicate.

Forget about these old guys. However, I wonder why do China and Korea have concerns on this topic. I want to know how their constititions are written.

When we look at aggressive attitudes of China and Korea to us, Abe has a reason he wants to change the peace constitution and become a normal country. China and Korea are taking advantage of Japan's peace constitition in their provocative diplomatic attitudes. Many Japanese are feeling angry.

Young people who acquired voting rights did not vote them. At the age of 18, they know the failure of the DPJ (Minshinto) government. It is too early they erase their failure. Also, joint campaign with Japan Communist Party was a mistake. JCP inreased their seats while DPJ lost the number.

This is revolutional. The best thing is that all Japanese now have a place to receive formal education about democracy and votings at schools. Until now people voted without receiving formal education about democracy and votings.

Sharp criticisms of the commentators here about Japan surprise me wtih their deep knowledge particularly when they refer to the seamy side of Japan. More informative and interesting than watching Japanese TV and reading Japanese newspapers. While I have a feel that their opinions reflect what they saw in their own countries before they came here.

It is difficult to find why he is serving such a long time from outside. He is not a elite. He does not speak English. He is not a graduate of Tokyo University. He does not appear brilliant. Any way, it is not easy to find a reason from outside. He may be skilled in secret manipulation and other diet members fear him.

At the time when the communism was popular, it was the receiver of the discontented populations. The communism was better than the troubles involving religions today. The former was rational while the latter is irrational.

Isramic countries say they have nothing to do with IS They also say IS is not true islam. Who is the leader of isramic world? Who is the top of the isramic religion.? To whom we can talk to? The world still cannot find a way to stop terrorism since Sept. 11. The world needs order. We need a strong leader.

Right wing truck speakers are really nuisances. They are not rightists but yakuzas (see their faces). They pretend to be rightists and extort money from corporations. In today's Japan, true rightists almost disappeared.

Japan is re-recognizing the difficulty of accepting immigrants who do not share the same history of the country in view of the result of the Brexit. Some say accepting immigrants to Japan revitalize the country. However, we do not want a confusion of the society as it is happening in europe. Stability of the society is more important than economy to some people.

The result of the referendum in Britain is not a fault of Abe. Do people who criticize Abe here think if DPJ rule had continued, Japan would have been better off? Nope! I am not very much worried about the temporary surge of yen. A real threat is the surge of selling of yen which heightens interest rate and the government of Japan will have a trouble in paying the interest of the government bond.

The GPIF is also responsible investing important public money in Toshiba without due analysis of the company. The GPIF started only recently. They have big money but do not have good staff and experiences.
