I predict crowds of young men milling around causing huge transport bottlenecks, the result is a huge drop in GDP leading to a massive govt economic stimulus leading TO a gram of gold reaching 100000 yen!
Posted in: If more people go out to look for Pokemon, it will increase consumer spending because these people will pay for transportation and meals. If local bodies organize regional Pokemon tours, it will help vitalize local economies. Its economic effects are far larger than other games, whose benefits are limited to those generated by relevant goods.

“It’s difficult to know how to express yourself without bothering someone else.”
Oh dear, what a pathetic comment on Japanese society.
However, a fair number of Japanese choose suicide as an option which ironically must cause

Under the Japan Securities Dealers Association’s (JSDA) guidelines, analysts at brokerages will be banned from gathering information that could reveal earnings results. Brokerages will also have to vet data gathered by analysts and ensure undisclosed material information isn’t passed to clients.

Japan has also promoted renewables but most investment has been in solar and in recent years it has cut incentives.
“There are too many hurdles for other sources of renewable power,” Asada said.
Why would a government cut incentives for renewable power unless it was not interested in alternative power generation?
The only 'hurdles' are those that the Japanese have are those they make by their over regulation of the alternative power industry.
Wind power generates roughly double what solar does with newer turbine designs being added to yearly.
Northern Honshu and above have some of the best conditions in Asia for electricity generation.
Spain is powered by wind and solar as Japan could be .....,
