Good time to short the Nikkei from tomorrow, because everyone will suddenly stop buying.

I think taxes are still required online, but maybe some companies cheat and don't do sales tax or maybe if you buy from overseas companies there is no sales tax.
Either way, this will just hurt regular stores and hurt the economy as a whole. It'll take a decade just to recover from this price shock, if ever.
Posted in: The percentage of online shopping will grow and accordingly, I'm hoping that it will increase our absolute transaction volume. This may be a turning point for online shopping industry in Japan.

Nuclear plants have to report every small thing like this. Even if a door is left open where it should be closed, that becomes a reportable violation. This fire had nothing to do with MOX fuel or nuclear technology.

Posted in: Japan says any bitcoin regulation should be international
sengoku38Feb. 28, 2014 - 05:35PM JST
Bitcoin's Proof-of-Work P2P system solves the Byzantine Generals problem, negating the need or ability of regulation.

NAFTA led to a lot of jobs leaving America and going to Mexico. Average workers lost their jobs, while the rich just got richer.

Media and anti-nuke crowd killed more people than the nuclear disaster (which was zero, by the way) by spreading FUD. At the same time, they claim to hold a monopoly on the interests of the people of Fukushima. It's really sad.

People will suddenly stop buying things on 4/1, which will crash the Nikkei and cause people to lose confidence in the economy. This will crash the economy for at least 10 years.
