Another great article from the depths of J tabloid world. They really do pull back the skin on all sorts of nefarious practices and the silliness of plenty of adults here.

kobe/Aly. not being contra for the sake of it, but not a huge fan of Stone. a lot of his movies are his "reimaginings" of real events, very often not particularly clever or gripping. and he talks hiws own book. has a movie out about Snowden so squeezes the Pokémon go "phenomenon" (which I am no fan of either) into the whole surveillance culture topic (i.e. the core of his movie)......

I hate the term "helicopter money", but Kuroda just saying that it wasn't coming (which it probably eventually is as I can't see how the J govt. EVER repays its debt) moved dollar/yen 130 bps. Imagine if either Kutoda or Abe's next "plan" to "revive" the economy is seen by "the market" as being insufficient. dollar /yen goes to 100, Kuroda uses that as an excuse to intervene, The Donald berates Japan for being a currency manipulator. Personally I would be buying gold sometime over the coming months. good for fear and good if inflation does eventually strike.(and especially when BoJ eventually monetizes some or all of the J govt debt mountain).

so much propaganda and contradictory information coming out. He was a loner/he had accomplices.. spur of the moment/planned for months. I like the stuff about him being a druggie and picking up male and female lovers on the net.

amazing how this ridiculous term (helicopter money) has become part of the normal discourse around economics and financial affairs.

this is kind of the same as printing money, no? We don't have inflation because of a number of other factors, not least that all that money is just sitting at the Central bank.
anyway, BoJ really doesn't have much room to ease more. Up to Honest Abe to relax fiscal policy (??) and spend spend spend

The entire world is invited to join our efforts at Nairobi to help revive the constructive mood that will lead to prosperity, dignity and a better planet. Together we can reinvigorate trade, finance, technology and investment as positive forces to end poverty and leave no one behind. Our collective efforts in these areas can renew our spirit of international engagement. Let us put the SDGs to work monitoring the inclusiveness of global growth and restoring the hope for prosperity for all that globalization presents us
UNCTAD eh? They can make the world a better place, eh? good job so far. This is just a load of hot air - meaningless and will do nothing to change the slowly dying current world order.

The downside of Twitter outweighs the few things it could be useful for. Encourages losers to be losers as there are no consequences. not sure they can suspend or ban people - they just open new accounts, no?
