Basically unlimited JGB buying with unlimited funding from the bank of Japan-what could go wrong?
Meanwhile,the cost of living rockets up for the average Taro!
Let's beat deflation by paying more for food,transport,clothing etc?
And how does Abe expect to rally the average Japanese to have kids while it takes 80000 yen to kit out a JHS kid with a school uniform towear?Factor in food,holidays,school excursions,web access etc-Abe wants it all more expensive!
I know companies already unable to function now-killing consumer demand (worse recession?) even more will lead to mass bankruptcies.
The rest of the world in deflation and Japan in inflation?
Where would I produce things to export?
Certainly not in a country where already too high prices go up more?
This sounds like political suicide to me.

Aso, with a penchant for dining in hotel restaurants for dinner most nights can hardly be able to understand an 8% rate of tax on food for millions of Japanese struggling to get by!
Rather than tax the people how about cutting down on waste in government?

With a declining birthdate,a plummeting yen,pathetic government and tax on everything that isn't tied down then expect

Limit top executive pay to no more than 150,000 US dollars a year and redistribute the leftover profit to lower levels-the result will be growth-do this all over the world and watch the world grow!

And Abe has also raised taxes on the poor by taxing food,clothes,transport etc!
It is no wonder that the birthrate is falling - Japanese cannot afford to have children.....

The estimate of 400 tonnes of radioactive water being released since march 2011 is just an estimate as the avenues into the sea cannot accurately estimated.In the meantime the sea is being constantly polluted along with the marine organisms.
The tanks in Fukushiama holding vast amounts of contamination are
prone to leaks and degradation
It is accepted in physics that radiation can be considered a wave form as well a particle.

Abe is cunning!
He'll delay the tax in the hopes of getting in again-he knows that an across the board tax hike doesn't differentiate on income levels and is immensely unpopular.
Instead of the media focus on the consumption tax all the time, maybe we should be questioning the profligate spending on massively overpriced Olympic venues?

In other words Globalisation has screwed the citizens of the mature economies as jobs have moved to lower
wage countries. The big companies keep profitability by constantly moving to areas where labor costs are lower.
The current system of endless growth and it's sustainability is an illusion as we live on an earth with finite resources with an ever expanding population.

Meanwhile thousands of tonnes of waste are being stored in rapidly deteriorating sacks placed all over Fukushima-the problem is that nobody wants nuclear waste!
When the next accident occurs it'll be the same again.
