I'm assuming that Abe plans to do to China what the US did to the Soviets. Start an arms race and bankrupt China.

The only "strength" GM has is cheap foreign labor. I'm thrilled to see Toyota as the sole automotive company in Australia.

The difference is that the Japan has a billion dollars a day net inflow, is still running a current account surplus, and is the world's largest creditor. The US has not has a trade surplus since the 70s and is the world's largest debtor. When the stock market crashes is 2015 (as it has every 7 years since 1987) we won't be able to afford any more stimulus or bailouts.

The Koreans and Japanese feeling the heat from Government Motors? You mean the same car company that couldn't stand on its own feet after the 2008 financial crisis?

I told my family to return the PS4 they bought me for this X-mas and get me a few hundred dollars of Amazon gift cards so I can buy some e-books for my Kindle Fire. If I do buy a Next-gen system it'll be when the price drops.

Japan doesn't need to set up a "free-trade zone" Japan's currency already floats against every other currency in the world and around $1 billion enters Japan daily. Before any of you claim "Japan is broke". Why is it Japan never seems to run out of money, where are the millions of homeless, unemployed, and hungry, and what proof do you have other than "official" statistics?

China isn't powerful or mighty. It's a polluted, corrupt, Communist dictatorship. We need to take out the Chinese Communist Party before they actually become a threat.

Japan can wait China out. Communism always fails, and China's disregard for its environment and people will only speed up China's collapse.
