Does Japan actually do stimulus? If they do then why is there so little inflation in Japan.

Who cares, I'd rather have a quality Toyota or Honda rather than something from Government Motors. More Japanese cars are built in America than American ones. And no, Japan exports around 4 million cars a year.

Bad move, Yuri Otani. As interest rates increase and stagflation and eventually hyperinflation strike, those bonds won't be worth anything. If America is so great then why did I have to go half a world away for stem-cell therapy?

The thing is that if Panasonic, Sharp, and Sony were doing half as bad as they claim to be they would have already gone bankrupt by now.

Personally, I would stick to Japanese yen simply and Japanese Government Bonds. Why? Because Japan is the only OECD nation that has its manufacturing infrastruture intact and is therefore likely the only G7 nation to survuve the economic depression the world is in. I've only been to Japan once as a medical tourist. (I have a degenerative form of Cerebral Palsy) but was extremely impressed with how everything was run.
I broke Japan's economic malaise into two possibilities. Either they're outright lying (putting out fake statistics) or they purposely did something to freeze their economy. Either way I have more faith in Japan than I do my own country (US), the EU, UK, or any of the other nations where riots have broken out.

All the parts for these cars will come from Japan, so the Japanese economy still benefits regardless of where the automotive factories are built.

China is a joke. It's a nation that's corrupt, polluted, and authoritarian. A superpower? The leader of Asia? No way in Hell.

If it were a clear threat like North Korea or the Mexican drug cartels it'd be a different story, but Syria isn't a threat to us.

Don't we have a moral obligation to our own people before a bunch of jihadist foreigners?

Our infrastructure can crumble, our schools can close, and our people can die from starvation and lack of healthcare, but by God we must put as much funding as possible into the warfare state. /s

Yes, because we all know what a horrible investment gold is and how safe bonds are, just like the PIIGS of Europe, right

Open Minded, making sure American citizens have food to eat, jobs to go to, and schools to send their children to is NOT in America's best interest? What's your logic behind this? God bless America? He had better, because we're socially, politically, and financially on a cliff and about to fall off.

Japan is the world's largest creditor nation and had 1.6 trillion US dollars in forex reserves. I'd say they're doing fairly well. At least they don't have one-sixth of their people on food stamps or 47% of their population on welfare. Keep it up Japan.
