It certainly helps when your government can print $30 Billion worth of Aid.... definitely opens doors.

Now either the press was out to get this kid or he's a weirdo, every video I saw of him just looked off kilter.... sorry... but he looked like he was hiding something every time I saw him on camera.

Ok... what about a virtual eikaiwa Ramen Shop.... pay an extra Y300 and you get a nice 5 minute conversation with a male or female English speaker. Plenty of English speaking people sitting around the world willing to make around $3 for 5 minutes conversation.

Tomorrow Japan, South Korea, and China will meet and talk about cooperation. For the past 2 to 3 years Japan has been building up its military and has been talking very aggressively about defense and its alliance with the USA. Ultimately because of this.... when the 3 parties sit down.... Japan will be able to talk from a position of strength not weakness.

I've lived in Japan for quite a few years..... this summer we're on the East coast of Chiba..... we were directly in the typhoon's path, it was the first time I actually closed the shutters out of fear. The winds were that strong. Before the weather got really bad I went for a walk along the beach.... I waded just a few feet into the water.... the ocean water temperature was unbelievably warm... almost tropical. With the water that warm... storm's and typhoon's do not weaken as they approach Japan. Lets hope that was the end of it.... because that typhoon definitely caused a lot of damage.

@ Bullfighter.... I've short sold millions of shares... literally millions. I know exactly what it means. Short selling is a tool and a way to make a profit when you think a stock is over priced, will have bad earnings, sales, or any sort of negative news come out in the future. It is a legit way to make money. The same as Buying a stock. In Japan you can only execute a Short Sale on an up-tick... same with the USA. In addition there are heavy penalties if you fail to execute the borrow an make delivery of the shares. A hedge fund that focuses on mismanaged companies or companies the cook the books is a good thing... why.... because those companies always, always, drop in price eventually, and investors are hurt... one way or the other investors will be hurt. A Hedge fund might catch the trouble early and bring it to lite before the company goes too far an bankrupts itself... at which point investors lose everything.

For over 20 years the Media and the GOP have totally dug up any and all details of the Clinton's dirty laundry.... the only thing they have on her right now is the email issue....everything else is very old news. Now Donald on the other hand, he's fresh meat.... only recently has the fine toothed comb come out and now Donald is starting to become transparent. Suffer the consequences Donald.... when a dirty, underhanded, bigot, lying, cheating, bully runs for President... its gonna come out. He was so arrogant that he actually thought people were too stupid to find his dirt.

No.... in other words the "scumbags", are coming to Japan because it is fertile territory. You want the "scumbags", they're like Roach Killer, their job is to find and kill companies that are over priced and are just too good to be true. Like the article mentions... lax oversight. That is music to their ears. Once they've identified their Roach... the burden of proof is on the Roach.... and the lax oversight is brought to lite. They're like the Police for International Accounting.... and usually if its too good to be true... guess what?

It also makes sense if you already have most of those sports venues already in use.... there are at least 10 U.S. Cities that could host the Olympics with existing facilities.

I laugh at the number of people that believe Benghazi was all of Hillary's fault.... People that have not clue about how difficult it is to both increase and decrease personnel and especially security personnel and any given U.S. Location around they world. People need to be housed and fed sometimes.... they sometimes do not have the option of letting the board locally. You just can't say.... give us more security unless a definite threat has been confirmed. Then there is the argument of what was told to the American public directly after the incident..... are you kidding....? The police often do not give the full story of a crime.... do you know why? If you don't then don't question why the Govt did not give the exact story of what happened. On to Hillary's emails..... prior people in that position did not use the Govt email servers too. Just because they didn't and she didn't does not make it right.... and she should have known better. That was a foolish mistake and arrogant.... but not a good enough argument for me to pick Donald Trump over her. Bill Clinton did an excellent job as president..... he'll be there with her. Sure he made mistakes but fiscally.... when the extra money was pouring into govt coffers... he didn't spend it like many would think a Democrat would.

Roger Ailes, Sean Hannity, and Steve Bannon.... when Trump loses.... those three and Donald will start a new news Network..... Trump News. They'll feed their new ultra right followers with bigotry, racism and lies..... and the hole time they'll sell them guns, gold, and cabins in the mountains. They don't give a damn about anything other than fleecing as many people as possible. I checked Go Daddy... TrumpNews.com is gone.... so it TrumpNewtork.com. Taken and being readied for the flock.

@Strangerland.... they don't have to pay crap back.... come on, its Japan, when is the last time a large company went bankrupt because of bad debt.... not joking.... think about it Stranger?

They might as well.... Japan's debt is perpetual debt.... heck, they should pour Y20 Trillion into it, makes no difference. Just print it and pour it.

Come on.... Biden is the VP, and not a very smart one at that. He's gone in 6 months too. So lighten up.... every country in the world has its fair share of misinformed politicians. At least he was partially right.... the U.S. Drafted the Japanese constitution and it pushed for Japan to be Constitutionally a peaceful nation.

The 1984 L.A. Summer Olympics were a major success. The bid was not Govt sponsored but put forth by a private business group in L.A. L.A. is already full of College and Professional stadiums.... the actual bidding group built no new structures. However a couple of private companies did and those are still in use today. U.S. Cities like Miami, Boston, Chicago, Phoenix, New York, and more... all already have mostly sufficient facilities especially if you use college facilities including Dorms to house athletes. The U.S. could easily host the Olympics in 10 Different cities without the need for major investment. The problem is... when the Govt gets involved... politicians see it as a major opportunity for graft and lining everyone's pockets.

Considering the the IOC appears to be as corrupt as the World Cup crew and that you'd basically have to be pretty adept at greasing the right palms just to get a bid let alone winning.... and that if your country did win to become Host it might only prove how corrupt and willing you are to play the game.... I'd say No... Not worth it. If we take away all the corruption... I'd give it a big Yes.

Its not about toxicity or bad chemicals.... its about market share and taking it away from the powers that be.
