As I work for myself I am putting up my prices-when I explain this to my customers they agree with me-I have slashed my prices to the bone but when it comes to my own fixed expenses I have to cover them so...........

The game is rigged in currency trading-look at the disclaimers of any trading platform.
Hard assets are the way to go!
The 1% put their money in art,gold,silver,cars,land,wine etc.
Even if you are not of the 1% it is possible to invest in bullion or proof coins,even an acre of land can produce a return
I have made x10 back on my hard investments in as little as three years-you can too

Mr Anderson, your attempt at promoting Fukushima runs in the face of reality and having viewed your short trailer I can assure you that it is going to be impossible for you to present your work in any balanced way.
Your work will seek to show Fukushima as 'awesome'
How can an area that has been and is still being exposed to radioactive contamination be awesome ?
I do not wish to be accused of being opinionated or one sided so.....
I suggest that Mr Anderson refer to the ex-mayor of Futaba, Mr Katsutaka Idogawa before making blithe comments about how safe and idyllic Fukushima is.

On my local B road which is full of cameras and speed traps the limit is 40kph.However, the cameras do not record the driver until a speed of over 70kph is reached.
Most drivers know this and there is an almost 100% incidence of law breaking 24/7!

If Japanese companies had the capability to still produce exports in Japan then there would still be a trade surplus.
Most electronic goods are mass produced in China.
The car makers have basically left Japan too.

Unfortunately, the decisions politicians make cause the citizens hardship or joy.
Success or failure.
Prewar symbolism in education is making a comeback.

Japanese politicians routinely refute the past with some disparaging remark - the problem is that the Japanese are not aware of their militaristic past and take a (still) superior attitude via a via their standing in Asia.
Lodging a protest over known historical events shows the Japanese government to be extremely childish.....

Toyota is sitting on record profits and is increasing wages here in Japan.
The wage in India is a paltry when compared to the cost of a car sold in India and when compared with of an Indian worker.
The Japanese had to riot in the sixties to get fair wages - will the Indians have to do the same?

Banks don't control economies!
The supply of labour,weather,technological innovations etc do.
Already I have seen an imbalance in retail orders in Japan this month. I can the numbers being skewed this month.
Next month will see a massive slump!
The weaker yen is going to hit the Japanese in their pockets as they pay more for oil,food,clothes etc.
The trouble with the BOJ is that the members create money out of thin air!
They have nil experience of real world business.
