BTW, a small soft drink at McDonald's Japan is akin to about 3 ounces.... And they don't have free refills. Thus I doubt Japan will match the west in its rate of obesity by paying 100 yen for a large soda...about 8 ounces. Drink up....

As an American, America's government and the federal reserve are hypocrites of the worse kind. Being the ultimate currency manipulator they dare tell other nations not to do likewise.... Shameful really....

Risky is an under statement.... The Japanese bond market basically crashed yesterday as yields plummeted. If this does not work, expect the Japanese economy to crash. In the mean time, buy Japanese stocks because they are on their way up big due to a flood of liquidity, and expect the yen to weaken to 120 to one vs. the U?S.Dollar by year end. Buy the etfs EWJ and YCS.
