“Economy is my first priority,” he told NHK. “Then through the strategic diplomacy that takes an overview of the globe, I’ll enhance Japan’s position.”
In other words the yen devaluation will continue as prices rise....

The yen is heading down.....that is the only thing I can say with any surety.
Wait! The other is a populace being brainwashed by a muzzled press over any chance to change the system.

Being single is great is it?
Errr, I don't think so! I'd rather be in the arms of my gf than not !

Think again because they certainly do.....!

Of course there is a choice-it is goverment propaganda to suggest otherwise!
It is 'a hung parliament'

Not one Japanese I have met show any liking for Abe!
The LDP, with 4 more years of power will proceed to decimate the economy.
However, in a perverse way I look forward to seeing this historical decline......

All gloom and doom?
Not for long.
There is still the immigration card to be played!
At present, the eople here in Japan are grudgingly taking their tax hike medicine all the while the rich boast about making millions of yen on their stock deals!
Don't like it but 'there's no alternative'.....
Even now the school books in the Primary and Junior High Schools are becoming replete with stories and skits of Chinese and Mongolian fables.More and more the 'trainees' in 7-11 and staff in restaurants are serving the customer in Japan.
The greedy politicians will instigate immigration into Japan as it means more money for them
I am being granted PR on my next visa application here without any initiation on my part - I wonder why?
Expect the news to be broken to the general Japanese populace when Abe gets his next four years....

The torture was not only painful but also disgusting in extremis!
The euphemistic 'rectal feeding' was a method employed to elicit information.
All I can imagine is that the CIA has a large number of sadists on the team.

Any long term people here should have an investment or a property in their country of birth.
I placed a large investment in the UK more than ten years ago.
The initial investment has doubled so I do not have sleepless nights about the economic situation here.
As I have children I have also tutored my 12 year old to Aiken 1st level ability knowing that if Japan becomes uncomfortable then there is always another option......

Still, there is no disagreeing with the general premise of this article and that is the yen is, and has been on a downward streak due to government meddling in the free market.
With such a rapidly large loss in consumption on the horizon due to the drop in population, the Japanese government has no other choice but to reduce its debt by yen weakness.
My advice is buy gold or silver with any spare yen that you have and preserve your wealth going into the future....

Just don't vote for Abe unless you want higher prices,your money wasted,low spend on education etc

Did a first grader write this article?
Certainly nobody that I have ever met wants a cheaper yen-the writer must be at 1st year primary school outside Japan
Doing a little research would show China to be the main producer of manufactured goods in the world and not Japan.
Most Japanese production takes place outside Nippon now.....

Went into a local coin dealer today saw that the price of 24k is 5k a gram!
