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.

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

Abe didn't help by warning of shoot down Chinese drones. This very well could escalate the point of no return. Pride should be up on the back burner.

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.
